Nothing Stays the Same

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26: 3

There are many things in life that come and go, but one thing in this world that we can count on for sure is . . . change. Nothing stays the same! Some people deal with change better than others and are able to see it as a positive rather than a negative. But many people struggle with change. They stress out about changing jobs or schools, getting a new haircut, moving across town, kids growing up, friends moving away, getting a new pastor, and the list goes on and on! But worry and stress do not belong in a Christian’s life. Each day is a new day to experience all the blessings that God has given us. It’s a new opportunity to witness for Him and it’s a second chance to have a fresh start! Whether we realize it or not, each day we are growing in the Lord. When we allow the Holy Spirit to dwell in us, we are being transformed from the inside out, thus reflecting God’s glory that burns from within. Sometimes God gives us a gentle nudge through His Holy Spirit, urging us to take care of a certain issue that needs forgiveness. Slowly but surely God is perfecting our characters and changing us so that we can be more like Him!
