Driving home from church today, I saw a church sign that said, Autumn Leaves, God Does Not. Those words really made me stop and think. Here we are in Fall. The Autumnal Equinox occurred September 23rd. The Winter Solstice will occur on December 21st. Just as the seasons change, so do people. God made us that way. He also gave us Free Will; that can be good or bad.
You see, we naturally like to think of it in a positive way; that bad people change into good people. It gives us hope for the future. If we are honest with ourselves, we know too, that good people can change into bad people also. People come in and out of our lives. Even circumstances change. We are living in a world of constant change.
It is comforting to my heart to know that God does not change. His love is constant, unchanging; everlasting. God does some pretty awesome stuff for us, His Children. He gives us life, gives us this beautiful and sometimes challenging world to live in; friends and loved one to care for and who care for us. He wants us all to return to Him. To aid us in doing so, He gives us His Word and chosen people to help guide us to Him. God is always with us. He will never leave us. We may not see Him, or realize, but no matter, He is there; to help us and give us guidance. Lean on Him today. He can take it!
I don’t know about anyone else, but these thoughts give he reassurance and make me smile.
