I was very blessed today to share a lovely lunch out with my boss who is also my pastor and his wife and the rest of my work mates. We had an awesome time together chatting over yummy Thai and it was just like having lunch with the family. We all get along so well together and God has built such an awesome unity between us all.
Spending time with family and friends is sometimes something that we can take for granted because we may do it so often but it is the little things that we frequently overlook that we need to take time to cherish because we never know where our lives may lead us. Life is full of change and I am one of those people who actually like change. Change really does feel like a holiday and I love it (and holidays of course)! It can be slightly overwhelming and maybe even a little bit scary at first but as you begin to let go and go with the flow it can get quite exciting. Just like a caterpillar after being couped up in a cocoon while it changes from a multi-legged crawling insect into a beautiful butterfly.
God is continually wanting us to change, to grow in our relationships with Him, to become more mature in Him, to become like Jesus. He also loves to see us succeed in life, to achieve our goals and our dreams but to do all of these things, takes lots of little steps and lots of changing.
But there is one thing that never changes and that is God... He is the same yesterday, today and forever. No matter what we do in life, where we go, how we live, where we may travel on this earth... Jesus is always there, constant and steadfast, never changing, always by our side and in control if we allow Him to be.
It is comforting to know that through all of the changes that life may bring my way... and I know there will be many... that Jesus will always be the one and only unchanging detail...
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
