Unchanging

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

YESTERDAY –
I felt like letting go
and I considered
turning back
to my old self.
It seemed
You had left me,
wallowing
in my pride.
And I was caught up
in a lie
I almost believed.

TODAY-
I surrender
my struggles to You.
I repent for relying
on my own strength
and for listening
to that deceitful voice.
I am sorry for doubting
Your faithful promises.
My heart is strengthened
by Your grace.
And I am humbled
that You would
take me back
AGAIN.

TOMORROW-
I will cling
ever tighter
to Your Word,
I will not be afraid
for You are my helper,
And You are with me
ALWAYS,
even until
the end
of the age.
I will praise You
with my last breath.

FOREVER
You are unchanging
in Your mercy,
in Your divine power,
in Your righteousness
in Your love.
Your years
will not come
to an end.

Isaiah 51:6 Lift up your eyes to the sky, Then look to the earth beneath; For the sky will vanish like smoke, And the earth will wear out like a garment And its inhabitants will die in like manner; But My salvation will be forever, And My righteousness will not wane.

  1. Thank God He is there through our struggles and that He understands our weaknesses. As long as we cling to Him, He will keep us. Thanks for another great poem!

  3. Amen, I love this one!

  4. Ah, Scotti, how lovely this is, and so true for each one of us. My favorite thought is that God is the only One in the future. Not even the enemy is there; he is a created being as we are. Only God–the future, therefore, is the most hopeful place of all! I am sooooo thankful for His mercy and care! God bless you!

  5. This is so cool! I love the way you categorized it!
