There is this phenomena that says people, in general, do not like change. People like comfortable familiarity, like a well worn, nubby sweater. I have a nubby sweater I love to wear… it’s red.
But, personally, I generally like change and look forward to the new opportunities that could come with the hopeful creating of a new-normal that is better than the normal I had before – a change that might bring more vibrancy to my life.
No change, or change?
How will the scales balance out in this new-normal coming post-pandemic?
I do not know the answers to this question, but I know who does. And, I know He desires to be the center of the new-normal for many people.
He is the Unchanging Changer.
He is the vertical relationship we were created for.
He is always the same, therefore can be counted upon for every need.
He is the One who sustained me in the tragedies I mentioned in my previous posts and He is the One who holds me now during all the unrest this pandemic brings. I do not know the future, but He does.
The truth is, this Unchanging God is actually a Changer; In fact, I might conclude, His main mission is to bring about change.
Thirty years ago He changed me and He has been changing me ever since.
He uses difficult trials in my life to bring about heart-change in me. He changes my heart so that I can see who I am in comparison to Him, the Almighty, Loving Father. Because He is the unchanging, I can lean on Him to face the dark days, as well as the bright days, with equal confidence because of the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus, who loves me so completely, He gave His life and opened the Way for me to have eternal life when I pass from this one; this allows a constant underlying vibrancy to my life.
Nothing shakes this change in me, no matter what – not illness, loss, grief, or even world-wide pandemics – because I am completely secure in the LORD.
Do you know Him?
… are you brave enough, are you willing?
As the new-normal unfolds in the days and months to come, will you consider seeking and knowing the Unchanging Changer
and make Him the center of your new-normal?
Be well my readers!
