We just moved into the church parsonage this past week and have been able to sleep here for a few days now. Boxes are getting unpacked, beds are being assembled, furniture is getting situated, and we are beginning to get acquainted with our new neighborhood.
Max shocked me a bit with the statistic he shared this morning in his first sermon here at Edgewood FMC. He said that we have had 7 different places of residence in the last 2 1/2 years. I have never taken the time to think about it, so that number seemed like a whole lot to me. Well, now that I have thought about it…he’s right!
I have always heard the phrase, “God is the same yesterday, today, and forever”. In our last months in Chile, the Lord put a similar phrase in my heart – one for me to hold on to: “God is the same here, there, and everywhere.” What a joy and peace to know that we have a Friend that will always be there and never change.
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV) The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
