Consistency We Can Believe In

(Graduation Day, 2006 with Josie and Megan)
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” 
Hebrews 13:8

This weekend as Cally and her friends graduated I was unexpectedly emotional as I watched them prepare to part ways. Not only was I proud of my little sister and sad her journey was coming to an end, but it also brought back memories of  my own graduation four years ago. (It really is all about me, you know...just kidding, Cally.)

I was in denial about college ending and couldn’t even bring myself to pack up my apartment. I made my brother stay with me two extra days because I wasn’t ready to leave Charlottesville and face the real world.   

I’ve never been one for change.  My heart longs for consistency and for things to stay the same.  Usually when my life is on the brink of change, I tend to shut down emotionally, because I don’t know the best way to handle it.

One simple truth I often forget through transition is that our God stays the same.  As our lives move in and out of various seasons, His promises and His truths remain the same.  In the midst of change, God is our constant.

“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.” 
Isaiah 40:8
“For I am the LORD, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed.”
Malachi 3:6
