Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 NIV
With all the changes happening in our lives and our world, it is wonderful and a blessing to know Our Heavenly Father is the same as HE was in the beginning, the past, the future, and forevermore! HIS Promise to be with us always is a comfort, and we can depend on HIM. We can live knowing HE IS Our Father and will provide for us and protect us.
In the past few weeks, I have been discarding things from my past. It has been difficult because I treasure everything. I am not a hoarder, but I am a collector of just about everything. I have notes from my years in high school, not from students, but from friends in my classes I was in — now that sounds crazy. I still have the first birthday card Clyde gave me in 1963! I have been reading and rereading notes from former students. They poured out their hearts to me, and I treasure the memories. However, I cannot take the material things with me when I leave this world. I will hold on to the precious memories as long as I can. I tell you this to explain how one person’s treasures are another person’s junk.
Looking back can be good, but looking forward is better. God told us to NOT store up treasure here on earth! We all make mistakes in doing that very act, however, we can change and make things better by reading God’s Word and storing HIS Word in our hearts and lives. We can take every opportunity to help others and share God’s Love. We can look for ways to SHINE for Jesus!
God’s Word never changes. He never changes. He is the starting point and ending. He holds the future in His hands. Time obeys His Command. He stands
alone and no one can defeat Him. The same God of the Bible, is the same God of today, tomorrow and forevermore. Thank You, Heavenly Father.
Please pray for me as I am praying for you.
