For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you.-1 Peter 1:23-25
Not every plant is a perfect, beautiful bloom that lasts. Not all plants and flowers in your garden stays. In the order of life, things die and darken, the flower petals lose its color, and fade into dust.
BUT one thing remains: Christ.
Like grass, in the grand scheme of life, everything fades. Nothing lasts forever. People change. People die. In one moment, your ally is now your enemy. Finances change, jobs are lost, relationships turn for the worst, you hear the diagnosis, and every change you can think of.
Yeah I know…Bianca, you are a Debbie Downer…
Well I’m not always writing to paint a pretty picture; I am writing to be real with myself and you all.
Nothing in this life is permanent except for Christ. God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. There is security and stability in the mist of uncertainty.
