Seasons Change

"...You have been upheld by Me from birth,
You have been carried from the womb:

Even to your old age, I am He,

And even to gray hairs I will carry you!
I have made, and I will bear;
Even I will carry, and will deliver you."
Isaiah 46:3-4

It is the first day of spring as I sit and write this post. It feels as though the seasons come and go with breakneck speed the older I get. As I have gotten older, I sometimes wake up in the night with a panicky feeling because of the unknowns about the future that come along with aging. That ought not to be. The truth is, what tomorrow will bring is unknown to all of us, no matter what season of life we are in. Our tomorrows are in God's hands. Our peace and assurance is found in knowing that the same God who created us in our mothers' womb loves us always and forever. He promises to be with us and to carry us even when our hair is white with age. (I love that there are even promises regarding aging in God's Word!)

In reality, things in life are constantly changing. A job you've had for decades may suddenly come to an end. A friend that you thought would be there forever may have walked out of your life. Even good changes-a move, a promotion, children graduating and leaving home or getting married, have stress and challenges mixed in with the joy.

There is only one thing that is unchangeable-God and His love and care for us. The reassurance of that truth helps to sustain us through life's changes, both the hard ones and the good ones. None of us knows what tomorrow will bring, but as the saying goes, we know the One Who holds tomorrow, (and us!), in His hands.
