dec 18 devotional
December 18: Change isn’t the ship on which we sail, nor the destination to which we head; but rather the compromises and course corrections that have to be made due to climate, resources and geography causing us to view our journey differently. To go out simply seeking change will lead us nowhere, endlessly wandering without purpose. And yet, to make any pilgrimage, of which all of our lives are one, means we need to travel with the companion of change. It will show us the impossible when we feel there is no way out. It will tempt us to find another way when we are faced with the challenges that are ours to bear and which will be the defining vista of our lives. We seem to be living in a time of phenomenal change, in so many different aspects of our lives. This doesn’t detract us from the goal of being faithful to our God, rather it is what reminds us that this faithfulness is what is more important than the path we feel so sure about traveling.
