"No change my heart shall fear"

A change is as good as a rest, we are told, yet few of us feel restful when confronted with radical change. Many prefer their lives to continue unaltered, comforting themselves with sayings like, "Better the devil you know than the one you don't." The Bible tells us how the children of Israel, when freed from slavery by a reluctant Pharaoh and led into the wilderness where the going got tough, were so frightened that they wished they had stayed in Egypt.

Our modern world is constantly changing. Nothing in it appears to be stable or lasting. Currency values can be volatile, jobs change or disappear, families be split, friends and loved ones come and go. Many companies go under or are taken over, some governments fall or are overthrown. In all this, to what can we possibly cling? On what can we truly rely? Is real security to be found in money, foreign currency, gold, land, or property? The value of any of these can easily fluctuate.

I am healed!
