When the Seasons Change
 
"I, the LORD, never change. That is why you descendants of Jacob haven't been destroyed yet." Malachi 3:6
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:7
 
I don't know about you, but when it's time to "Fall Back", I brace myself for the change in season.  The leaves if any are left on the trees, fall rapidly.  They go from the vivid colors of the fall to the naked trees of the winter.  It gets darker sooner, the sun only graces us with its presence for a short time, and it gets cold.  As drastic (to me) as changes in season are, our own human change is usually not.  Human behavior does not mirror that of the changing world because we do not naturally like change.  Over time, we get accustomed to it, but who in their right mind would welcome it?
 
The only steadfast and permanent thing in life is God's love, presence, and whole state of being.  God does not change.  Neither does His love, plan, and goal for us.  God does not change like our shadows.  He does not fluctuate like our weight, and He does not waver!  The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one and their promise to be there for us is still valid.  The seasons change and are the opportunity for us to grow in God.  Good night and I love you!  Keep me in your prayers and I will do the same!
 
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever."  Hebrews 13:8
