The unchanging One...
If you are looking for love and support from other people, or the things of this world, at some point you will be disappointed.
"Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." (Colossians 3:2)
It's only through a personal relationship with Christ that you can have a true anchor in your life. One that will never move from you. One that will never change its love for you.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
Surrender your life to Jesus and rest in His assurance of everlasting love and peace. You can trust Him, as He cannot lie.
"God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?" (Numbers 23:19)
God will fulfill His promises to you. He will provide for your needs. He will NEVER forsake you. He will NEVER change His mind about His love for you.
"Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow." (James 1:17)
Either start making, or make even more room, for God in your life. The more room you make, the more work He can do in you.
Don't give up. God wants to help.
"That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever." (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
Give up the world and give "in" to the Lord.
"And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice--the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. " (Romans 12:1-2)
