Thank the Lord for the relationship with can have with Him through all the days He gives us to live on this earth. Sometimes a lot of things in this life can be exasperating, cruel, hard, or unfair. Sometimes a lot of things in this life are wonderful, joyous, exhilarating, or great. It is wonderful to know that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Why? Because He does not change. He doesn’t alter. And in the midst of all that life has to offer, it’s wonderful to know that basic truth. So when He deals with us during the good and/or bad times, He’s the same. That makes Him fair and just. Who could ask for anything more?
