Nothing on this earth remains the same. As you well know, that includes us. We change like the wind, depending on our motivation and sometimes events that have absolutely nothing to do with us. That is the worldly experience. We are not shielded from misfortune or fortune. We are not sure of future events and we can’t predict them.
You see we have very little control of our circumstances or where we are headed. Granted we can control what we can. We try not to make things difficult on ourselves by making bone headed decisions. We have the Holy Bible (The Word) to guide us. Help us to navigate the system. God is our guide, our resources and strenght. Stay as close to Him as you can. God is our only hope.
