Change

The word that can be a gift or seem like cussing. "God is the same yesterday, today and forever," so the saying goes. I would have to say that God may not change, but that means we should. His relentless love, pursuit, and fathering of us ought to break down our pride, stubbornness, and selfish bent. Ouch. The loss of control, comfort and predictability seems counterintuitive doesn't it? If it's within my control and ability, then it might be without God? Change sure doesn't seem easy and it is often painful, but...

My son is learning that as annoying as it is to stop playing and to lay still to have his diaper changed, it is far more uncomfortable to have diaper rash and a butt covered in... well, you get the point.

Keep changing me Father, but could you gently pat some powder on afterwards?
