pennywise

Last month, when many were naming their year, "The year of...", I, at first, couldn't come up with any one thing that stuck out to me.  I then wrote a post about a new kind of year.  God was opening doors to something new.  Indeed it has been already full of new things for me and I am so enjoying them all. 
Since then, God has further blessed my spirit in many ways and has invited me into an especially sweet reunion with Him during Bible study and worship. 
However, things aren't as they used to be...they have changed.  Change occurs whether we want it to or not.  Although some changes are more difficult than others, it's through these times that God reveals Himself faithful, mighty, and constant.  He never changes (Malachi 3:6; Revelation 4:8).  He is as great in the tough times as He is in the bountiful times.  I love this about my God! 
I am welcoming the changes taking place.  It's refreshing to see things coming together as only God could arrange.  I also find it quite humorous that the change in our pockets reminds us what to do during the rearranging times of our lives...I quote from the penny, "In God We Trust".  He is trustworthy through the changes taking place and I desire to be found even more pennywise as this year progresses.

  2. I'm so glad you're seeing God and not randomness or something smaller in the changes you're living!

  3. I think change is the water God sprinkles on His clay to make it malleable in His hands. It's a good thing but sometimes messy.
