As I look to learn more of God in scripture I come to discover that his character is unchanging. That there is no more room for Him to be loving, compassionate, patient, and graceful. It is in the very core of God this unchanging and undying reality that many find comfort and rest.
Yet for his steadfast and consistency everywhere I look God demands that we continually be changed, humbled, and transformed. This world will never be made perfect, and I will be changing for all eternity with His character as the trajectory which I am to, every so slowly, step into.
To be there is nothing more beautiful than this messy and demanding process. For I do not believe love to be easy, hope to be free of duty, or grace to be easy to accept. For I find myself standing on my own path, fighting myself so that I can live into everything that God has before me.
