“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” – James 1: 17, NIV
Sharon has been going through a season of change in her life. There have been positive changes like the start of her online business and the news that she’s pregnant after years of infertility. Now, she and her husband are in the middle of buying their first home.
But along with these changes, there have been some losses, too. Her mother passed away after a lengthy battle with an illness and her best friend moved to another country.
With so much changing, Sharon has found comfort in focusing on the things that haven’t changed. Her husband’s encouragement and support have been steadfast. Her friend’s continued text messages and notes make her feel loved.

But more than that, she’s thankful for God’s unchanging character. She often finds herself saying, “When everything changes, God doesn’t.” Those five words give her the courage and the confidence to embrace this season of change.
We can all relate to Sharon, especially now. If you are an adult, you can look back over your life and reflect on all the changes that have taken place in your life and in the world around you, and continue to take place. Things have been changing so rapidly around us we can hardly keep up. And COVID-19 has only made things more difficult.
Maybe you have just been diagnosed with diabetes or some other chronic illness. That’s a huge change right there. You have to change the way you eat, exercise, and the way you view your life as a whole. All of these changes can have you feeling overwhelmed or even abandoned. In those moments, look to God’s unchanging nature to find comfort and support, and as we approach the season of thanksgiving, let us be mindful of all the things we can still be thankful for.
God, thank You for being faithful and constant. Remind me when a season of change comes that I can look to You for support and guidance. Please be with me, Father and reassure my heart.
A diagnosis of type 2 diabetes can send your life into a tailspin. It can leave you feeling alone and overwhelmed, but it doesn’t have to. Join my type 2 diabetes network group and get the help and support you need.

Most of us dread change. But as you’ve pointed out in this encouraging devotional, change has a way of turning out for our good. Above all of this, God is constant is never changes. And through each season of change, He’s with us each step of the way.
