Today’s word is: Same
Nothing is the same. My babies grow. My children get bigger. Change. Mature. As we drive to Florida today I am reminded that even the scenery in life changes. Nothing stays the same for long.
Seasons change. The summer gives way to fall and then brings winter close behind. Seasons in life change. From a new mom of a small boy to a mother of four I’ve seen mothering change.
I want things to change, but then I don’t.
I want to be different mother in five years from now. I want my children to mature and grow, even if I do miss the baby stages.
Yet I crave sameness. Moments in time I would freeze. The smell of a newly washed infant. Fresh out of the tub. Lotioned up. Wet hair and smiles. I could breathe it in for years. And years. I crave sameness in my life. I get life figured out and suddenly something NEW.
The only constant in my life is Him. My Savior. My Friend. My God. He who never changes walks me through all of the changes of life.
No, my life will never be the same. This moment in time is not going to last. My God will. He is the never-changing All powerful, all sufficient, constant God who has walked with me in the past and will walk with me still.
In a life full of changes and nothing seems to same, I find that my God does stay the same. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Forever. No fear in change because His love drives out the fear.
