Once again, I find myself facing changes that I’m not ready to face. But then again, when am I really ever completely ready for changes when they happen?
Next week is Mike Glenn’s last week as Kairos Pastor. It still doesn’t seem real. I can’t begin to imagine Kairos without Uncle Mikey. But starting February 16, it will be a reality to which I’ll have to adjust.
I’ve had friendships that ended because the other person moved away or simply drifted out of my life. Even now, I wish I could go back and do things differently for some of them. Still, life moves on. Maybe our paths weren’t meant to stay parallel forever. Maybe God has something different and better for the other person that neither of us can see right now.
I’m reminded once again that the only constant in this life is that everything will change and nothing will ever stay the same.
Well, not exactly.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is the constant in a world of change.
That’s what I’m holding on to when I face new circumstances. It’s what I cling to when I feel like I have nothing solid to hang on to in my life.
So beside death and taxes, one more thing is sure. Jesus will fulfill all His promises in and through me. I can count on that.
With that in mind, I can look forward to the future with great confidence. Kairos is in good hands with Chris Brooks. I am in good hands with Jesus. There is no mistake, no tragedy, no loss that Jesus can’t redeem and transform into something way better than I or anyone else ever dreamed possible.
That’s a good thought to send me off to sleep tonight. I hope it will be for you as well.
