This fall has brought many new changes here in our household. From J starting middle school to me starting college (again!) to moving into a new church (5 weeks away now), I am feeling change in my life. I have discovered that I am not really a fan of change. I love going on vacation, but I much prefer going to a city that I know, rather than somewhere that I have never been before. Change can be painful, scary, and exciting all rolled up into one. You never know what to expect around that next bend in the road and that is disconcerting and scary.

There is one constant in your life no matter how much change is happening around you and that is God. Even if you are tired, He is right there with you.

So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith. (Galatians 6:9-10 The Message).

Even if you are confused and don’t know which way to go, He is guiding you.

Guide me in Your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You [You only and altogether] do I wait [expectantly] all the day long. (Psalm 25:5).

Even if everything in your life is going wrong, there is hope and help through Him.

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
(Psalm 121)

Right now, I am standing on these verses to help get through each and every day. Yes, my calendar is full of tests, work, church move notes, kid notes, and more, but God will give me the strength to get through each and everyday. Everything that is in my life right now was put there by God, so He will equip me and strengthen me to get it all done. I just have to trust Him on that.

What is happening in your life? Does change make you nervous? If so, remember our one constant – God. He is always there for you!

Smiles and Loves! Janis
