DEVOTIONAL: Have you ever had everything in your life change in the space of a day? Sometimes it happens for good, but more often it happen through either a tragedy or just unexpected and difficult challenges. A phone call in the middle of the night. A pink slip in your paycheck. A look at your bank balances and a dawning realization that something seriously has to change in your life if you are to make it through. I’m convinced that change should have been a four-letter word!
On a September day twenty years ago, I picked up the phone to answer a call and heard the words, “The biopsy came back positive for Melanoma, your husband will need to come in to my office to discuss treatment plans.” Absolutely everything in my world changed that day, though I wouldn’t fully comprehend just how much until 3 1/4 years later. All the same, I felt so disoriented and uncertain. Just the day before I had my life well mapped out and was fairly certain of where I was heading and in 24 hours I was lost and felt very alone.
Then there are those marvelous, mysterious days that bring wonderful changes. I remember the day I met my husband to be — once again I thought I knew the path I was walking on and the destination I was headed towards, but in the space of just a few weeks everything in my life had changed! I learned though, that even good change is unsettling and stressful. Change is always a challenge to find a safe and secure path to walk on.
Sometimes life changes come one upon another leaving you no time to get your bearings. It helps so much to be prepared in advance with the understanding that changes will come. The only consistency in life is its inconsistency. So whenever change comes knocking suddenly at your door you need to remember this scripture and hold tight to it so that it can, in turn, hold you steady in the storm.
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY: Ps 37:5-7 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. NIV
PRAYER: Lord, sometimes it seems like everything about my life changes in the space of a day. Yesterday I thought I knew where my path was taking me and today I find myself on an entirely different path. Help me to remember that You know the path You have intended all along for me to travel on. Help me to commit my way in your hands and walk in the light of your will and your ways.
Help me to sit still and not squirm like a little child asking constantly, “Are we there yet? Where are we going? When will we get there?” Help me to sit still before you, wait patiently and not fret when things don’t seem to be going the way I imagined they should! AMENby
