“For the mountains may move
and the hills disappear,
but even then my faithful love for you will remain.
My covenant of blessing will never be broken,”
says the Lord, who has mercy on you.”
Is there anyone in the world that actually enjoys change? Most of us are creatures of habit, so when anything changes in the slightest, we definitely take notice!
When I sense change coming, I fight it for as long as I can and then eventually surrender, realizing time and time again that I’ve made things so much harder for myself.
There is one thing that doesn’t change though, and that is God’s love for us. Through every season of life, no matter how exciting or how devastating – His faithful love remains. It does not change, falter or decrease.
When it seems like things are falling apart, we can always go back to the basics – we are His children, and we are so loved.
God, today I’m thankful that You stay the same through every season of life. Thank you for loving me.
“O my son, give me your heart. May your eyes take delight in following my ways.”
Sometimes we over-complicate things. Okay, most of the time we over-complicate things. We as women tend to overthink things, and our imaginations can sometimes get the best of us. I always struggled with “what does God want from me?” I was always searching for this deep, profound answer. Boy, was I off base.
I always thought He wanted me at my best, slaying giants and conquering mountains. In reality, I was setting myself up for failure because I have experienced the valley much more than the mountain top. When I take a step back and read this scripture, I am told that He simply desires my heart.
There is absolutely nothing complicated about that. He wants my dreams, and my plans. He wants me to be surrendered to His will for my life, and always to be obedient to His voice and His word.
God, I am thankful for the simple things today. You want the broken pieces and all my strengths. You want me at my best, and love me just as much when I’m at my worst. You desire me, You love me and You want the best for me and for that I am truly grateful.
