Change can be a good thing or change can be a bad thing so it is up to each of us to decide what change we will accept.

If we look around us at the world and the way society has changed over the last few years it almost seems like we are living in a foreign land. The standards that we took for granted, the standards that told us who we are have come under attack and all but been pushed to the side in society.

There was a time when the Bible, the word of God was the center, the glue that held us all together. The word was where we found our answers, where we found our direction and our common ground. The Bible the word of God was what gave us the direction and the strength to stand firm and do the right thing in every situation that we faced in life.

2-Timothy 3:16-17 says 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

The Bible the word of God is where we found our peace when the storms of life were too much to bear. Man, society has said that there is no longer a need for the Bible, the word of God, because there is no longer a need for the outdated or antiquated ways of the God of the Bible! God the Creator is being pushed to the back by His creation.

Isn’t it amazing how the thoughts and actions of man toward God mimic the thoughts and actions of our own children as they grow up and decide that we the parents who gave them life and nurtured them now know so little and have no real input in their lives. I am sure that just like it hurts our hearts and our feelings it must also grieve the heart of God as He watches as His creation, His children turn from His love and direction ignoring His word.

O how we would love it if we could get our children to understand that we have faced all of the challenges that life has thrown at us and we really do have some answers that would help them to avoid a lot of the pain and hardships that they insist on going through.

You know the same can be said for the word of God if we as His children would just read the wisdom that God has laid out for us in His word, the Bible, we would find such peace and direction that would help us to live a life that was so full of joy!

Change is what we allow and what we can tolerate but we need to understand that God has given us an awesome set of directions and if we will follow them as He leads us we will make our decisions to change or stand our ground for what we know to be the truth!
