Shifting Shadows

I'm not sure what's going on with me, but this has been such an up and down kind of year.  I have high moments and then when the low moments come, they are really low.  This week has been one of those low times.  

► Some of it could be I've been sick and on very strong antibiotics, which make me feel sicker than the actual illness!  
► Some of it is that I feel very isolated.  
► Some of it could be that I'm 51 and perhaps, this is just a sign of the beginnings of menopause.  
► Some of it could just be because I'm human, frail and weak and this is the way life goes.

My life, at times, feels like a yo-yo. I'm so thankful that I serve a God whose very nature is steady, unchanging and constant.

I love this verse in James 1:17 ~ "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."

There is no wavering and flickering with God.  He is always present.  He does not shift.

During those valleys I experience, I've been trying to remember that and to keep my eyes focused on Him.  I've been remembering the numerous times He has proved Himself faithful.  I've been taking it one step at a time.

I'm so glad that I have a relationship with the Lord who does respond based on His "mood" and does not change like shifting shadows!
