Life is meant for change. We are never the same as we were. Every day that we age brings about another new challenge. Whether it be one more wrinkle, a painful circumstance or a totally new location - the Lord meant for life to be a challenge to draw him closer to us. Thinking of Job gives me so much encouragement. Our life changes are so minor compared to his - however difficult they may seem.

God challenges us every day to either accept our circumstances or fight against them in misery. I choose to accept. I choose to look at what he lays out before me and understand what His purpose is for me in dealing with it. Most importantly, I strive to deal with them in a way that is fitting of God's desire for my life, even though I frequently fail (thanks to my ever present humanness...).

Praise God for his ever-present faithfulness to us in our lives, even as we struggle to handle the weight and difficulty of our days.
