Looking Back Can Be A Good Thing

Sometimes you have to look back and see where you've been in order to truly appreciate where you are. I did a little "looking back" this week, thumbing through old journals, page by painful page. A prayer I wrote during a dreadfully bleak season reminded me of how faithful God has been. The prayer was one sentence: "Lord, my world is changing, but you stay the same."

Truth is, nothing is secure in life these days. Not jobs. Not friendships. Not finances. Not family. Not mortgages. Not marriages. Indeed, life is one big pile of shifting sand. But God... God remains the same. Day, after day and year, after year, we can place our trust in Him, knowing the Rock beneath us will not move. ♦

"He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; he that keepeth thee will not slumber." Psalm 121:3


  1. Good morning! wow...our hearts have really been in similar places this week. I wrote a very similar type post on thursday as well. Give it a read if you get the chance. Praise God He is always the same! ENJOY your week-end! HUGS

  2. Standing in your Amen corner with all the others who are tabernacling with us.

    And you have really pretty handwriting! I just had to say that.

  3. It's so nice to know that God is unchanging even though so much change goes on with us. I am so grateful for his steadfastness.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  4. He's always the same and promised never to leave or forsake us. When times are bad or troubles come our way, He's there.

  5. Thanks so much for sharing those encouraging thoughts and Words. Blessings ~

  6. This is so true, Gayle. Thank you for pointing it out in such a loving way.
