(we) Change (He does not)




Happy day, it’s Five Minute Friday!
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking (it’s way harder than it sounds)
2. Link back
here and invite others to join in.
3. Visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
Can you do it, do you dare? Come on and join the fun!



For I am the Lord, I do not change.Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.

Malachi 3:6 (NKJV)

Change

GO:


I am a bibliophile. I love books, and I always have. At my parent’s home, there is a barrister’s bookcase filled with my dad’s bibles. As a biblical scholar and theologian, he had several; in different languages, with and without commentaries, everything you might imagine, but this is not that story. I inherited my love of books, and that will never change. Well…

I never carry my bible to church anymore. I remember buying it, a women’s bible, pink (so unlike me), but beautiful. Now I’m a technogeek. When it’s time to read scripture, or sometimes even when it’s not, I whip out my smartphone and head for YouVersion (don’t you love it??). Not only can I highlight, I compare versions (this is so not a review). I have never taken more notes, checked in more often, not reading, but diving deep into the Word, doing research, asking questions, etc. It has changed the way I study God’s Word.

Fortunately, He doesn’t mind that I’ve left the books behind. He knows I love Him, and daily seek His face. My method of bible study has changed, like almost everything about me has changed. It is the nature of being human, we grow, evolve or die. We change. He does not. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever more. I found a tool that helps me get closer to Him, takes me deeper, lets me hear the sound of His voice in many ways.

He will always be there, unchanged, no matter how I seek Him. Today’s evidence that God is good.
