Change


Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.


Change in the offing
And I resist
With all I have
Yet God bids
Put self aside
Not yours, but My
Will be done
In My time
In My place
In My love
Sufficient grace in Me
Is here
Is now
Will forever be

Amen

  8. When we place our lives and trust in God's hands, there is no "change" that can overcome us or harm us. He will be with us all the way through whatever the changes may bring. Thinking of you and trusting your "change" will be a good thing in God's eyes.
