1 Peter 1:24-25 (NIV)
All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;the grass withers and the flowers fall,25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.
*When I think of this verse, I think of how people are forever changing, and trying to find themselves despite consideration for others or their circumstances. Just as quickly as grass grows and flowers bloom, they are now subject to the elements and can he damaged or even destroyed by the circumstances of life. Humans are the same way...We go through periods of our life when we flourish, are beautiful, act accordingly, and provide happiness to others...Then, there are those times when we become a little weak, damaged, and may dry out and almost wither away to nothing... Yet, God remains in control and His word will forever restore and cause change if you allow it to do so...There is no back and forth with God like humans..."It is what it is" with Him. I am so thankful that He never changes and remains the same. Allow Him to help you steady your life, and help you grow and flourish. Sure, you will have to weather storms, but at least you can properly grow through them with Him. Our phases are different stages of our lives that we can learn from with His word, or you can choose to be ever changing or going in circles with the same ordeal year after year without explanation. Which will you choose?
