The last few days some changes have come into my life. Sunday night I fell at the skating rink, and Monday morning I went to urgent care, got x-rays, and was splinted for a possible hidden fracture of the elbow. Then yesterday, I followed up with a doctor on my doctor’s team, and she allowed me to take off the splint. She told me to have another x-ray done next week and do another followup visit the next day, and we’ll go from there.
So, my mind has been kind of preoccupied with trying to do things differently to avoid sharp pains. Taking lids off bottles and jars has become a challenge, as has turning the door knob. It rained today, and I had to hold the umbrella with the other hand. I can’t pick up anything heavy with that hand because of various sharp pains it causes in the forearm.
Well, we’ll get it figured out soon enough, Lord willing. In the meantime, I was thinking about how wonderful the Lord is, whether I think about His wonder or not.
He is with me at every moment whether I recognize His presence or not, and I’m so grateful for that!
He doesn’t need me to recognize His awesomeness to remain Awesome. He always is, always has been, and always will be Awesome!
He doesn’t need me to think about His beauty and grace to continue being Beautiful and Gracious.
If I forget to worship Him for His greatness, He does not cease to be great.
If I waver in unbelief about His goodness, He continues to be good.
When I am weak, He is still strong.
If I feel that I am not as close to Him as I used to be, I can be absolutely sure that He is not the one who has wandered away from me, but rather I who have wandered away from Him.
God never changes. He never becomes less-than-amazing when His creation does not remember to thank Him!
Today I am thankful that God stays the same, yesterday, today, and forever.
I’m thankful that He is the One and only person that I can count on never to change, and since He is perfect, He is also the only one who doesn’t need to change.
What about you? Are you thankful that God never changes? Aren’t you glad He continues to be God even when we don’t remember to think about Him? What are some other characteristics of God’s that You are glad that they never change? Can you add to the above list?
