It’s so predictable that life will be unpredictable. Life has these ups and downs and the mountain top can be followed by the deep valley in a very short time, it seems. A project you thought was going great crashes and burns; and then it resurrects from the dead! The stock market with your retirement funds invested in it takes a nosedive. A relationship that you really care about may be up one day and down the next. Mood swings are just that, swings! They rise and fall with the next event or phone call or email. If we attach ourselves to them, our emotional selves that is, we will rise or fall with the events of the day.
But what if we connected our hearts to a secure place that never changes? Ah, see what I’m getting at? What if our lives, futures, pasts, our sense of well being were attached to the Lord Himself? The Bible says He never changes. So unlike our lives, God does not go up and down with every wave. And if we have a personal, strong and current relationship with Him, we’ll be steadier, more able to handle the good and the difficult. Reconnect with the Lord. Set your treasures down next to His throne and trust Him. Rely on the Lord for wisdom, for strength, for a rescue or for a reality check. He is a Rock to all who anchor their lives with Him. PB
