I then remembered a verse from one of my favorite hymns: "Be Still My Soul." I've blogged about it before.
Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;The line states: "In every change He faithful will remain." What comfort those seven words bring. He is faithful to walk with us in every change. Changes do come. People age, die, move and every event means a "new normal." Believers have such precious promises given to us. Psalm 46:1 states: "God is our refuge and our strength a very present help in times of trouble." Gratefully He hasn't left believers alone but will be faithful in our every "new normal" circumstances.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly, Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
