A God Who Never Changes

Hello to the few readers that may actually still be looking for a new post. It has been quite some time since I've posted. So many things in our lives have changed. We moved to a new town 500 miles away from family. My husband and I chose to home school when we moved here and I just have to tell you, homeschooling isn't for the faint of heart. My oldest girl turned eleven in June, my baby girl turned two in September, and my only boy just had his eighth birthday on Saturday. I'm living between preteen years and the terrible-twos. Sometimes I just wish everything would slow down or stop for a moment so I good savor the craziness of my life. But it is true, time stops for no one.

Living in this new town has been hard on me, well I guess on all of us. Its not a bad town. Its a very pretty historical town, but its not home. Those who know me know that I don't "do change" well. I don't like to shake things up too often...at least not when it puts stress on me or those I love. I like a change of scenery from time to time, but I like my comfort zone for living life. So here I am, the girl who doesn't like change, and just about everything in my life has changed. I'm really not complaining. All change isn't bad. Sometimes we need to step (or be pushed) out of our comfort zones. I just miss the warmth of being where all is familiar, like wearing your favorite comfy pajamas and cuddling up with your favorite blanket. I don't like this strange foreign feeling, like walking in the dark without a flashlight in your neighbor's backyard. Its not familiar. Its not the same. Its not home. Anyone else feeling this way?

Of all the things that have changed so rapidly, I'm so thankful to serve a God who doesn't change. He's the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He has been My Rock and My Hiding Place. He has been My Comforter. He has been My Prince of Peace. He has given me and continues to give me the courage to move forward. He is my comfy pajamas and my favorite blanket. He has covered me with His love and given me light in a strange place. He has filled me with a warmth like no other. I am never alone. I am thankful and so humbled to serve a God like that. As the new dawn breaks this morning, I remain in a strange place, but still I am held by the unseen Hand of my unchanging God.

Becky, it is so good to see you post...I have truly missed hearing from you. My heart hears what you are saying...it must be hard being so far from home...it probably seems lonely at times and everything is strange around you...but like you said, God is with you and He has a reason for why you are where you are...I pray for Him to reveal that to you and give you such a peace in your heart. Please find time to share from time to time....your hearts cry is an inspiration at times for others.....I am praying for you and your family
