Although God never changes, our lives are constantly changing, particularly as we pray Thy will be done. If I am going to receive the gift of joy in the midst of change, I need to have an open heart and mind. See, I need to decide what will never change in my life and then be willing to change everything else if need be. Change does not mean compromise, God’s word is non-negotiable. But it does mean being open to how God is working in people’s lives and orchestrating events. Our acceptance of God’s will determines how well we weather the winds of change.

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.” Proverbs 16:9
