Change and All that it Means!
I married this woman who had lived on one block in a small town (two different houses) for practically all her life. The past few weeks we have been emptying and cleaning out her home in Belle Plaine to rent out. I’ve rediscovered that change can be traumatic. How do you leave a home that has been the center of your life for over 50 years?
Change is disturbing. It brings stress and could even cause a fracturing of relationships. Who wants change to intrude into our lives? It’s been said by professionals that we fear change even more than death.
But change is part of our existence. We want stability and life to be on an even keel. Events come our way that we have no control over. Suddenly, change erupts and our lives are never the same.
Because of the change around us, there’s something very settling about a constant in our lives. It says of Jesus in the little book of Hebrews: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” The One who showed great compassion and tenderness to many in the gospels remains the same. He doesn’t change. There’s no fickleness, no prejudice; He’s not vindictive or even judgmental. He’s described as one who doesn’t break a bruised reed or quench a smoldering wick. (Those figures of speech are about people—not reeds and wicks!) He blesses instead of condemning.
Our changeless Lord should bring great comfort and peace to us. He’s dependable; He’s faithful. He will help us even in times of change.
