“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” – James 1: 17, NIV
I’ve gone through many seasons of change in my life. Some, like getting married, having children and buying a home, have been fun and positive. But sometimes life suddenly changes…
There have been hard struggles in my life as well. I’ve lived through multiple miscarriages, life changing diagnoses and ongoing special needs in my children as well as my chronic illness dystonia which began in 2010.
Honestly, it’s been overwhelming, especially as a woman in recovery. What’s helped me to stay grounded is the midst of my physical struggles is to focus on God’s Word, as well as His unchanging love and provision. I continuously remind myself that no matter how I might be feeling that day or what changes around me, God will never change. He’s the same yesterday, today and forever and His promises are faithful and true no matter what life brings.
Can you relate? Maybe you’re going through your own struggles and changes in life and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or even abandoned. When these moments come, look to God’s unchanging nature to find comfort and support.
God, thank You for being faithful and constant through life’s changes even when I’m not. Remind me that no matter what comes in my life that I can always look to You for support and guidance. Stay with me, Father and reassure my heart.
