What Should We do When Change is All Around?

Steadfast Love

Our world, our country is changing at a fast pace. Many of the boundaries for healthy living are being discarded. It more important than ever to keep God’s word fresh in our mind, to teach it to our children and grandchildren. God’s desire for us is good but we must know his Word.

The Lord is my portion; I promise to keep your words,

I entreat your favor with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise.

When I think on my ways, I turn my feet to your testimonies,

hasten and do not delay to keep your commandments.

Though the cords of the wicked ensnare me, I do not forget your law.

At midnight I rise to praise you, because of your righteous rules.

I am a companion of all who fear you, of those who keep your precepts.

The earth is full of your steadfast love; teach me your statutes!

Psalm 119: 57-64

  1. Change is bloody everywhere,
    each drongo picks another name,
    but, myself, I do not care
    and I shall just stay the same,
    unreconstructed and serene,
    a bushman from the distant past,
    keeping heart and soul quite clean
    right unto the very last.
    Some will call me obsolete,
    shout that I’ve outlived my use,
    “You’re just a bogan!”, they will bleat,
    but a gronk in any other shoes
    will show sure as the world is round,
    today’s a penny short of a pound.

  2. Thank you Carol for these scriptures we need to hold close, know, do, and share. I agree we need to be sharing God’s Word with those we love and are around us! Your #fmf neighbor, Cindy
