“The Lord is our God for ever and ever, and he will be our guide until we die.”

A Changeless God In Times Of Change

isabella-juskova-100378Some days it feels as though everything we thought we could rely on is changing.

Even things that seemed rock solid – relationships, roles, places, material possessions – can change or disappear and their loss can take our breath away. On those days it is good to remind ourselves that one thing will never change – God’s love for us – and he promises never to leave us.

In Psalm 48:14 we read “The Lord is our God for ever and ever, and he will be our guide until we die.”  And Romans 8:38 assures us that nothing, nothing at all, can ever separate us from God’s love shown to us in Jesus.

A couple of good books that speak with wisdom about life’s transitions and losses are:

And Not One Bird Stopped Singing by Doris Moreland Jones (Upper Room Books 1997)

Lost in the Middle by Paul David Tripp (Shepherd Press 2004).
