Transitions. Change. New realities. Adapting. Recent events lately had me seeing things in new light. and making me realized how much I've been holding on to what was and expecting the new realities to remain the same as they were. the biggest changes are always concerning the people around me. The people I love. But even people change. Situations changes, things happen that are out of our control. People move on, people go their separate ways. and what remains the same?Only God. He is the same yesterday today and forever. And God is so timely. He really knows our hearts. 2 dreams, group discussion on friday, one sermon, a passage in the bible is more than enough to realized what He's been trying to tell me.
Eccl 3:1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.
And in verse 11, it's a comfort to read these words. "He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end." If there is one thing at all I've learnt in the past year, is to know and trust that everything He does, He does for a reason. And that all that He does (whether it might seem good or bad at that time) is for me to get closer to Him.
Changes come painfully sometimes. heartaches and all that. But what are those in the light of eternity? 2 Cor 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. Phil 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
