Life involves Change




Life for a Christian is never about sameness. It's always about change. Life involves change. Change involves loss. Loss involves death of one kind or another. Christ never allow the hearts of His own to be shattered without excellent reasons and eternal purposes. Christ dearly loved Martha and Mary, yet He purposely allowed them to suffer a loss.  The most debilitating loss for a Christian is not the loss of a loved one but the loss of faith. Nothing is more natural than grief after a devastating loss but those of us in Christ can experience satisfying life again. When our hearts have been shattered by loss we have an opportunity to welcome a supernatural power to our lives. That power is to live on this earth when we really rather die. God becomes the only explanation for our emotional survival and revival. Perhaps the most profound miracle is living through something we thought would kill us. No life will never be same. It is always about change. When our hearts are hemorrhaging with grief and loss never forget that Christ binds and compresses it with a nail scarred hand. (copied from "Breaking Free" by Beth Moore)
