The Only Constant in Life is Change
Science tells us that there many constants in this world, many of which I memorized during college. Like many things in life, there are often exceptions to these "laws" of nature. New research will allow for refining of these numbers or sometimes even completely nullify them. Fortunately for us there is one thing that we know will never change. The writer of Hebrews reminds us that Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday, and tomorrow. With all that said, there is going to be some change taking place in our lives. I found out last Thursday that I was being laid off, along with 27 others, from the Engineering firm I have worked for the last 2 1/2 years. Even though the workload had made it pretty apparent that this would happen, it was still quite a shock to the system. I am actively seeking work and we have no doubt that I will be able to find a job. However, there are always so many unanswered questions. When will I find a job? Who with? Will we have to relocate? Will the pay be the same? Will we have to sell the house? As so many of you who have been through this before have shared with us, we know that it will work out and it will be ok. God is faithful and he will take care of us. We just ask that you pray for us during this time and that you would ask God to give us peace, and to make clear the path he has set out for us. Thank you for all of your encouragement. We would be so much worse off if it wasn't for our family, friends and church family. We love you all.
