My friend Sue's blog post this afternoon is a wonderful reminder of our unchanging God, specifically His faithfulness. After a year of many changes, great and small, easy and hard, to know that He is unchanging in His EVERY attribute is a tremendous comfort.

The key is keeping our eyes upon Him in the midst of change. When we take our eyes off of Him, we can become like Peter, sinking into choppy waters. Throw in a difficult change, and diverting our eyes from Christ can feel like a millstone fastened around our neck...sinking, sinking.

But if we can stay focused on Him during changes, and rely on Him for strength to handle what comes our way, the changes might still be difficult but we have a Fortress. A Refuge. A Dwelling Place.

With all the changes that come with each new year, what peace can come from knowing the One who never changes. His love for us never changes.

"For I the Lord do not change;"
Malachi 3:6
