My Unchanging Guarantee

If you seek Him
He will be found by you.
1 Chronicles 28:9
Seasons of transition are crazy.
The things that used to work--
the ways that used to be routine--
just don't feel right anymore.
And that can make you feel
like you are either doing something wrong
or you are losing what you thought was yours.
I know the Lord is doing something new.

And while I sometimes feel desperate to know
what He is doing and how long this is all going to take,
He assures me that though I sense change and transition,
He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
He is restructuring and reordering to make a way
for His Kingdom to advance here on earth.
But He is not changing.
His love is still the center of the universe.
That is my unchanging guarantee 
in this changing season.
 If I seek Him, He will be found by me.
He asks that I trust His unfailing love
and allow my own love to grow in the while.
He reminded me that I need to train my belief system
to be in complete agreement with His:
"For I am persuaded that there is nothing 
that can separate me from His great love."
The mountains may be taken away 
and the hills may shake, 
but My loving-kindness will not be taken from you. 
And My agreement of peace will not be shaken,” 
says the Lord who has mercy on you.
Isaiah 54:10
May I never allow my perspective
to shape one thought about Him
that doesn't align completely and totally
with His word.
I bank all that I am 
on His unchanging nature
and His merciful unfailing love.
I am so grateful.
