It’s Five Minute Friday again! People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Change.
Just the word makes me anxious.
I have spent a lifetime fighting change. And, yet, here I am in a season of great change. And, just as I imagined, it hurts.
I long for familiar and comfortable and, well, changeless. I long for the One who says, “I change not.”
And that, I suspect, is how it is supposed to work. When we have comfort, we are content with comfort. But throw a bit of unexpected and, let’s be honest, unwanted change our way and suddenly we are desperate for the changeless God.
I do not like change. I do not like the uncertainty or the lost relationships or the dreams that die. I do not like the pain.
But, I’m thankful. I’m grateful that my God does not change.
My Jesus is still Savior.
So, change? Bring it on.
