It seems I live in a world of flux…things are constantly changing.
The plan for today? Guess what? It got changed yesterday.
In planning events for the spring semester at work, one event has had the date changed three times and it could change again. Ever try to plan a reception with catering and reserve a room on a busy campus for an ever moving date?
Dates change. Schedules change. Life changes…and we have to go with it.
In today’s world we have instant coffee, instant oatmeal, instant soup and instant tea. Yet if the water to coffee, oatmeal, soup or tea ratio is off, then our coffee, soup, oatmeal or tea may not be how we like it.
It might not taste good. Or right. It just might be OK. Not good. Not great. Just OK.
Or…it could be bad.
Whatever…isn’t it wonderful that HE never changes?
That HE never moves. That HE is CONSTANT.
If I trust him to guide me, instead of using MY guidance system, He will direct me…and He will ALWAYS be steadfast. My job is to keep the right ratio of HIM to me. A challenge I do not take lightly, nor do I always get it right. But…because He is steadfast and immovable, I always know how and where to find Him.
How about you? Do you have trouble with your ratio? Or with things constantly changing?
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
