God is our refuge and strength, and ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. (Psalm 46:1-2)
Things are changing. Remodeling a bathroom changes everything. Workers run throughout my house like ants. The contents of closets and cupboards are emptied, boxed up and stacked about the house. I have lost my routine, I have lost all calmness in my home. Dust and noise haunt my dreams.
Sometimes God remodels our lives. Jobs, finances, relationships, homes, or churches can change or be altered. We feel emptied, we feel lost. The routines that brought us calm are disrupted.
When the workers are done, my house will not be the same. I hope it will be better. God is steadfast and when changes occur in the world around me I will not be the same, I hope I will be better.
