All good and right things. And yet so much change. There are so many feelings and thoughts echoing through my head and heart. And it feels as if all security and peace are gone. But these feelings are not reality!
My reality is found in the Lord Jesus, and in Him alone. "When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay." He is constant when so many things in my life are changing. He is sovereign over those changes. He is interceding on my behalf before the Father. And He withholds no good thing from me.
I'm learning all over again my need to rest in Christ and in the sovereign perfect plans of the Lord rather than in my own ideas of what would be best. And I am convinced that I will continue to relearn this over and over again until I see Jesus face to face. But by His grace, I will be still and know that He is God. I will cease striving. I will remember where my security is found.
"On Christ, the Solid Rock, I stand - all other ground is sinking sand. All other ground is sinking sand."
