How we long for permanence! Changes are difficult, and looking back over the past year, we have

experienced many changes and have felt at times we were on an escalator moving from one scene to

the next.

The new year will also bring changes that can be disturbing, frustrating and cause insecurity not knowing

what will happen next. Health issues, death in a family, job relocation and the lists goes on

Everyone wants to have peace and security and have an anchor they can depend upon. God

has encouraged us by saying, "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father...

...who does not change." (James 1:17)

He cannot change since He is perfect or he would not be God. He is unchanging and is the same today,

yesterday and forever. He will be just as kind, loving, merciful, forgiving and faithful as always even before

time began.

He who keeps us today will not forsake us tomorrow and he will not bring us good one day and evil

another because he is constant and dependable. His tenderness, sympathy and justice will not change nor

his intercession for his people will not slacken.

As we begin a new year with its changes, perhaps a good scripture to cling to is Psalm 46:1-2)

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, I will not FEAR though the

earth be removed and the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea." Whether we have a happy

new year or not will largely depend upon our own attitude and our relationship with Almighty God

Final thought: Changes can be good, and maybe God wants to make some changes in our lives.

The greatest change I have ever had is in the words of the song that says, "What a wonderful change

in my life has been wrought, since Jesus came into my heart."

Anyway, I trust you will have a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
