Somethin’s a changin’…

Today is Five Minute Friday, the day in which bloggers far and wide come together to write for five minutes on a prompt we are given.  Nothing but write, write, write for five minutes.  No editing, just writing.

Today’s prompt is:  Change.

Go!

This word has been on my mind a lot lately.  I’m not always good with change.  I mean some change is for the best, but change in my life means I sometimes have to, well, change.

Change can mean adapting to something new, something out of the familiarity of life as we always knew it.

And sometimes that can be good — it can be the best thing for us.

And sometimes, well, it’s just hard to cope with.

Life is always changing — nothing ever really stays the same does it?

Relationships can come and go — people leave either by distance or just choosing to step out of our lives.

Children grow and move out on their own.

We may move to a new place leaving behind perhaps years of memories in another house.

And even seasons quietly slip into the next one leaving us wondering where did the time go.

Yet through all the changes life brings — good, bad or otherwise — we can be grateful for one thing that does not change and helps to keep us grounded wherever we are…God.

My Savior is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  And when changes in my life perhaps pull me towards a little twinge of sadness or yearning perhaps for what was I know I can stand firm in Him.

For even when my world may feel off kilter or rocked a little, He will always be there in the midst of it and will keep my footing steady and sure.

Stop!

May we be filled with gratitude today for all He has done and through looking back at His faithfulness in our lives over the years know without doubt that He will continue to be with us even through all the changes life will bring.

Blessings!

    Yes, He is the one constant!

      1. Sometimes a hullabaloo is a good thing…and necessary to wake people up. Jesus didn’t seem to mind raising one now and then.

        I thought you did a great job! 🙂
