From Winslow “Morning Thoughts”

     Amid all the things that change, there is one that never changes.  Let us take hold of Him that never changes.   The following is a good word for me, and I thought it might be a good word for you too.

“For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell.”

Col_1:19

All wisdom to guide, all power to uphold, all love to soothe, all grace to support, all tenderness to sympathize, dwells in Christ. Let us, then, gird ourselves to a fresh taking hold of Christ. We must walk through this year not by sight, but by faith- and that faith must deal simply and directly, with Jesus. “Without me you can do nothing.” But with His strength made perfect in our weakness, we can do all things. Oh, be this our course and our posture- “coming up from the wilderness leaning on her Beloved.” Living in a world of imperfection and change, we must expect nothing perfect, nothing stable, in what we are, in what we do, or in what we enjoy. But amid the dissolving views of the world that “passes away,” let us take firm hold of the unchangeableness of God. The wheels may revolve, but the axle on which they turn is immoveable. Such is our covenant God. Events may vary- providences may change- friends may die- feelings may fluctuate- but God in Christ will know “no variableness, neither the shadow of a turning.” “Having loved His own that were in the world, He loved them unto the end.”

    I am so glad God is unchanging! What could we trust in if He were changing or changed His mind. Then He would be like Allah, who does as he pleases and his followers have not guarantee of anything. But we have been guaranteed more than we could ever ask for from our faithful, loving and unchanging God!

      Thank you Dru. Very sweet of you. I think for a while the moninations should go to others. Please don’t be offended but I just don’t have the energy required to deal with them. 🙂

      Hi Chook. Miss you. Will have to wait on the questions, but maybe will try to answer in blog sometime. Are you still in school, and working hard?

        Wayne! Sorry I’m getting to this so late. I haven’t been on my blog for a while. I’m happy to have you back in the blog universe! I’ve finished my final project, so I’m just waiting on results and then I have to enroll to graduate. But for now I’m going to catch up on your writings. And don’t stress about the questions!
