Change and decay in all around I see
Oh, Thou who changest not, abide with me.
As I sang these words for my morning worship, I had a thought. Not anything profound, not even anything necessarily new, but rather something comforting.
God is the only constant in our lives besides change itself. In a world where the majority of people have difficulty with change, possibly even very much dislike change, how comforting to know that there is a God who is ever the same. He is the God who was, and is, and is to come, Eternal Father, the Constant Companion who promises never to stop loving us, never to change.
