Of old You laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
They will perish, but You will endure;
Yes, they will all grow old like a garment;
Like a cloak You will change them,
And they will be changed.
But You are the same,
And Your years will have no end
Psalm 102: 25-27 (NKJV)

Change has been a constant here and everywhere. As soon as I think things are getting back to normal, they change again. All of these ups and downs lead me to so many thoughts. The first one is, God is constant. 

No matter how things change around us, God doesn't change. He is ever faithful. He is in control and He is love. 

My second thought is that with all this talk about the virus, it is wise to take care of one's health. I am amazed at how far small steps can take me. 

I started this health work three years ago. My weight was very high and I needed to do something about it. I told myself that I was going to lose weight. I got the help I needed. I took small steps and I am in a much better place. Slow change has brought lasting results. 

During this Spring, I told myself I was going to lose weight. It wasn't easy but I did it. I was very happy with the results. I did put on a lot of effort. I stayed away from excuses and I embraced hard work. 

I believe that I can be a better wife, mother, and human being when I am healthier. So I will continue to embrace the work of being a healthy person.

My last thought is on prayer. I prayed for a lot of things to change these past few months. I am here to announce that most of them did not change. The good thing is that I did. My attitude towards my challenges changed. Although I would love to see every little thing I prayed for change, I grew in my trust in God. He doesn't change and He is faithful. 

I trust that God has a plan. I trust Him to perform that plan in His timing. Meanwhile, I will continue to pray and believe in God. 

Have you thought about the change you experience? What did you learn?
