One thing never changes...New Year or not.
As we start a New Year, everyone is talking about change. We have a new President about to take office. Some people are moving to new homes. New jobs. There are new babies. New friends. Resolutions to change their weight, become more educated, or to just be kind.
Not all change is welcomed or deemed positive. Some is downright scary. A bad health diagnosis. A lost job. A lost child or spouse.
One thing that I am so glad never ever changes, is the character and nature of Jesus Christ. Hebrews 13:8 tell us that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever". Doesn't that make you smile??
Let it comfort you my friend if you are dealing with frightening changes in your life...and if things are pretty rosy for you, well then, praise the Lord for your blessings! He will never leave nor forsake us. He will always be right here. And we can always expect the same love and grace that flowed from His death on the cross to meet us where we are right now. Or ten years from now even. Amen!!
