This piece was written 6 years ago here: Unchanging….after the 2010 elections. The words are just as apt for today, after the 2016 Federal Elections
In this day and age of uncertainty,
Man depends on man for security.
In the ages.
Seasons come, seasons go,
Earthly life does ebb and flow.
From giving birth,
To leaving this earth,
From worldly gain,
To human pain.
The slow death of these earthly grounds,
Its aging utters groaning sounds.
As this earth grows old,
Men are becoming increasingly bold,
Of self-sufficiency; no need to depend,
Not needing God, is the ultimate end.
Men come, men go,
The unrelenting changes of life’s flow.
It makes you breathless
With the ability to leave you anxious.
Seeking for what is unchanging,
Looking for what is enduring.
How precious it is to know of the One,
In this earthly life of the dulling sun.
How sweet it is our refuge we find
Where we can leave all this changing behind.
For in Him we have complete security,
In His promises we have firm stability.
His power, His wisdom, His justice, His truth,
His love He has shown since the earth’s youth.
Reigning from heaven above.
In full control of all things,
Quieting of the soul this brings.
Knowing that nothing happens unforeseen,
In what is to come or has been.
As we walk on this temporary earthly abode,
We take comfort in the unchanging love God has bestowed,
On His children here on earth everyday,
Relieving them of utter dismay.
How dear it is for us to know
He patiently and graciously does show…
That He is the same from eternity past
And so….in future eternity He will perfectly last…
