“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid.” –David

     There was a guy riding in the back of a taxi cab who tapped the driver on the shoulder and said, “Hey Buddy, turn here.” Immediately the taxi-cab driver screamed, lost control of the car, and ran off the shoulder into a ditch. For a few moments everything was silent until the driver said, “Man, you scared the daylights out of me!”

“I’m sorry,” said the passenger, “I didn’t think a tap on the shoulder was that big of a deal.”

“I suppose it’s not your fault,” said the taxi-cab driver. “Today is my first day on the job driving a cab. I’ve been driving a hearse for the past 20 years.”

Change can be hard, not just for you, but for those around you. Change can cause us all to respond in usual, even frightful ways. During the transitions of life we must study our environment and get acclimated to our surroundings. Most importantly however, we must trust in the One Who never changes. It is during the changes of life I see more clearly the unchanging nature of God. When I submit to His leadership and direction, I don’t have to fear who is in front of me…or behind me.
