Momentum


Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Hebrews 13:8

In his book Momentum, Daniel Seymour says that when the rate of change outside our institutions exceeds the rate of change inside, we’re in danger of losing ground. Seymour’s book addresses colleges and universities, but we’re all grappling with the implications of change in our society. It’s hard to keep up with the times as our culture refashions itself by the minute, for better or worse. We’re overwhelmed by the pace of change in our technology and even in our churches.

But one thing never changes. Malachi 3:6 says: “For I am the Lord, I do not change.” By the very definition of the word God, our heavenly Father exists from everlasting to everlasting. He is eternal, and His qualities of love, power, justice, and joy never change. Our hope for the future is based on His faithfulness in the past.

If you’re struggling to keep up with changes around you, look to the Lord. Find stability in Him. Live with the Master’s momentum. Let His wisdom guide you through the spinning days, and follow Him at every step. Though all the earth may change and decay, we’re blessed to be able to abide in an eternal God who changes not and whose mercy endures forever.

Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not; / As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.
Thomas O. Chisholm, “Great is Thy Faithfulness”

carefree, careless, self loathing, forgetful of people, places and names....yet I do care for people or that's what I would like to think... addicted to all things in life ( in a bad way).... That's me in a nutshell. Love me or hate me.... that would be subject to your interpretation of the truth, and what is the truth??? Well, that's a loaded question.... go read the Bible.. if that's your thing

  1. Very appropriate subject matter and important truth well-worth remembering and taking to heart. But I also have to say that your devotional-blogs are so smoothly, consistently and tightly written that, out of what I have been privileged to read thus far, I would dare to say you would do an excellent job penning a devotional book. Thank you for sharing your faith and talent! Blessings to you!
