Constancy

As I look at my generation, I see a lot of dissatisfaction. People longing for the next thing. The next job will be better. The right person will make life better. If my week stinks, at least Friday night will be a good time.

I see this in my own heart as well. Too often I feel like a wanderer, becoming the victim of my present circumstance. Now, there is an ebb and flow to life. True, life can be hard, boring, exhilarating, fun, and stupid. However, as Christians, we need to have constancy.

What is it about you that stays the same no matter what circumstance you find yourself? What daily disciplines do you practice in order maintain constancy? I don’t know how long I could live if I just let circumstances carry me. I long for my relationship with Jesus to be constant. I long for my diet of God’s Word to be constant. I long for a positive outlook and attitude to be constant. I want my love for people and my heart for the lost to be constant.

Why?

Because Jesus alive. He is real. I am His. My joy and meaning is anchored in His reality and His love for me. Constancy is not based on feeling, but on truth.

How about you?
