April 9th – Ecclesiastes 3:1

Ecclesiastes 3:1

I love the quote by theologian John Henry Newman which says, “To live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often.” No one likes change. It’s hard, unpleasant, and takes work. But life is about change. And the Christian life is about changing into the image of Jesus. For each one plays a part in making us who we are. And far from being just random events that happen, we know that God is in control, and has a time and purpose for everything in our lives. For He sees beginning to end, and knows the wonderful grand plan He has for each of us. All we have to do is embrace the ebb and flow of life, trust God in all things, and find meaning and purpose in each moment no matter what it may bring.
