Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Hebrews 13:8 (New International Version)

Change is a part of our lives. Sometimes change comes as a blessing and sometimes, ...well it doesn't. Some folks are afraid of change- while some welcome it. Sometimes life throws us curves and we land and think "what just happened?" Change can just hit us and hit us hard- it can literally knock the wind out of us. The one thing we can count on as humans is, ...things just change..

Change can be a really good thing too. It can help us grow, strengthens us, stretch us, challenge us and revive us. I've never quite understood the term "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade"... it's not lemonade without sugar, it's just bitter and sour- makes you pucker up and your eyes water. So, even when bad things happen, we need to find something good (sugar) to sweeten it up- to make it bearable.

When change happens, try and remember that we always have one certainty in our lives as Christians. God never changes. His love for us is always there. His Spirit is always present. He is our strength in bad times. Our Comforter when we're challenged to step out of our comfort zones. And He's our Guide when we don't know which way life is going to point us. We can always count on Him.

I have several people in my life that are facing some major changes and whether it's a relationship, a birth, a death or even relocating- I want to encourage you to face these changes and find the good. Trust God to lead and guide you through the change. Remember that He is in control and we must allow Him to work in our lives for our own good. He always has a plan- He's always there- He never changes!
