“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 1:17”
Jamaica has come and gone. I realize I didn’t blog about it or post pictures (gasp). Shortly after we arrived home, our grown child Micayla informed us that she moved her wedding from a year away to 2 1/2 weeks away! I’m still trying to catch my breath as I type this and drink my coffee!
The verse above came in a mini booklet “Promises for Moms” that I received in the mail for my birthday yesterday. Its the first one I opened and read, exactly what I needed at this very moment. Don’t you just LOVE it when God works like that!?!
It’s a promise. Everything good and perfect thing is from him, Everything we have is a gift…our husbands, children, homes, every strawberry in the patch, the beautiful sunrise, the Spring rain, every breath…even the ones I’m still trying to catch. Gifts. Straight from our maker to us, to enjoy…everyday. Do you see your gifts?
HE does not change like shifting shadows. Like wedding dates, he DOES NOT change. He is solid, steady, reliable, dependable. What are the shadows lurking in your life? Cancer, loss of a job, sick child, broken foot, failing marriage. There is reassurance in the presence of the Almighty. He is stronger than the shadows of this life. The shadows come and go, they creep in and out, but God stays. He promises He stays, unchanged.
