Faith Through a Change

“For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” Malachi 3:6

Sometimes change comes slowly, like when raising a child. You enjoy the gradual emerging of a beautiful person growing into adulthood and then one day you realize a new season and way of relating to this one you love is here. A bitter-sweetness tickles your heart as you accept that this change is a part of life.

Other times change blindsides and leaves you reeling. Stunned and unprepared, you try to get your bearings as you come to terms with the truth that things will never be the same again. What used to be takes on a hue of homesickness even though it may have only changed a little while ago. Sometimes tears accompany this change as you grieve a sudden loss of a loved one, a job, your health, or anything significant This is where your faith has a chance to shine as you search for a place to absorb the shock. Jesus stands ready to steady you, My Friend. He is the same yesterday and today and forever! (Hebrews 13:8) He will never forsake you, and His invitation to come to Him for soul-rest is a standing one (Hebrews 13:5; Matthew 11: 28-30). Cling to the Rock of Ages as your world quakes beneath your feet and let Him uphold you with His righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10). Change can be hard, but do not fear, God will see you through this. You will come out on the other side even more confident that change is no match for the One Who never does.

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
