“Listen to Me…
You who have been borne by Me from birth
And have been carried from the womb;
Even to your old age I will be the same,
And even to your graying years I will bear you!
I have done it, and I will carry you;
I will bear you and I will deliver you.”
“I, the Lord, do not change.”
(Isaiah 46:3-4; Malachi 3:6, NASB)
God of unfailing, unrestrainable love,
how often do I
the blessings You send me!
I lash out.
I whine and complain like a child,
fearful of change.
I cling to my poverty because it is
O Father, forgive me!
Forgive me for mistrusting Your love!
You are the unchanging God,
always only wisdom,
always only good,
always only bringing our best.
Through all the changes and seasons of life,
I will look to You.
I will bring my concerns to You.
I will trust You.
And then, even in my ignorance,
I will rejoice in what
Your omniscient love is doing for me.
You are good, Father!
You are always good, and
Your love endures forever!
are part of the inevitable course of this world.
But stay confident:
God is still in control of the outcome.
All will serve His loving purpose.
