Sometimes life feels stable and certain - other times it's unsettling and hard to find that stability. Sometimes life throws things at us that we never expected that make everything different, whether for better or worse.
The writer of Hebrews reminds us that: "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." (Heb 13:8)
With Him as our foundation we have little to fear - no matter what else might happen in life we will always have Him and He will always be who He is. The tricky part is remembering that in the middle of circumstance!
A long time ago I realised that no matter what happens to me in life, God is always there first, the best and worst surprises of my life are no surprise to Him and no challenge to His plan for my life. But it's a hard lesson to keep remembering and living in uncertain times.
As each of us face changes and challenges in life, I hope and pray we can keep our eyes on Jesus and keep trusting in His plan and purpose for our lives.
