“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
Last night I received some horrible news . . . it’s related to the crisis for which I write this blog.
Ever had one of those moments when it seemed like the world was caving in around you and the bottom was falling out beneath you? Ever been in a place where everything you know with vibrant colors suddenly turns black and white. Ever reflected on the things that used to make you laugh and smile and instead feel sadness? And in the middle of those moments we plead and all but beg for God to comfort, to hold, to carry the immense burden. But the mere act of asking for those things reveals the lack of trust in my own heart I have in believing in His promises.
Yesterday He was here, right by my side — better, He was living inside me! Today is no different! He is right beside me, comforting me and living inside me! Oh sure, the circumstances have changed, the scenery is a little scorched, but He’s the same today as He was yesterday. So, while my crisis continues, my relationship with Christ is strengthened.
One thing I’m learning in the midst of crisis is the difficulty that comes in seeing the hope there is in a future. But remember, yesterday . . . same — today . . . same — tomorrow and forever . . . SAME! He cares for us — He cares for me!
