Grammar 101

So I thought a little grammar lesson would be fitting for today......I know I know, it's summer break.....sorry, it's the homeschooler in me. I promise it will be quick and to the point.

Today the word is "change". Lets look at it as a verb and a noun. And to boost this "lesson" up to a "Higher" level, I am going to bring God into it. Now come on, did you think I wouldn't? In fact, this lesson is actually for me. I could use a change in my life in some areas.

If you get something out of it......bonus!

OK, here it is:

God does not change

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
~Hebrews 13:8

The Bible, although written so long ago, is still relevant today. In Isaiah 40:8, God promises us, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of God stands forever.” Because He is the same yesterday, I know that what He has said will still remain true for you and me today. The truths and principles that were applied in the lives of Abraham, Moses, David and all the people in the Bible are the same truths we need to apply to our lives in this day.

That great truth will not change, because our Savior changes not.

Noun: God is a changer

He turns darkness into light.
He turns mourning into dancing.
He turns filthy rags into royal garments.
He turns ashes into beauty.
He turns bondage into freedom
He turns sadness into joy.
He turns worry into comfort.
He turns conflict into peace.
He turns death into life.

I pray that you will experience His changing power and His love today.


Short and sweet today. :)

Thanks for taking the time to write this post today. Me and Jeremy had a big discussion the other day about what changes we need to make, to continue to grow. Jeremy has a personal trial right now that is discouraging to him.

He found it helpful to switch his train of thought in his instance. To remember that we are God's children, and as parents how would we feel if our child was in this situation. Or if our child was discouraged... or if our child needed a change, but maybe didn't see it or want it. Helped him to have more understanding of his particular situation.

And helped us both to get our prayers less narrow, as they had gotten slowly over time.

Lovely post. Isn't it awesome that we can depend on God never to change or get moody or anything?

In my blog I don't follow all the English rules, which is funny because I am a stickler when it comes to my kid's homeschooling. I do follow most of 'em though, lol.

Glad you're feeling better after your migrane. I have a friend that takes medication for it (not valium) and it doesn't make him groggy or anything.

My hubby gets them sometimes and he doesn't throw up either, though I know a gal who does.

Great lesson!

Gasp, this whole time I thought change was a handful of coins :o)

:D Just kidding, I love this post ;) so many people think the Bible is outdated. Nope, we're merely growing apart from God's will. God does not change to become "hip" with the modern times ((shakes head))

Great post toots!

Thanks! As someone who had to constantly adjust to change as a child, I tend to want to dig my feet in these days. I need this reminder daily, to let God order the changes.

Great lesson here, Michelle. I've never been one for much change, which makes the changelessness of God even more appealing to me!

Have a great Sunday.

Wonderful Post Michelle! It is so awesome to think that the reason that God can change anything is because He is so constant and unmovable! Knowing that makes it so much easier to have faith. A person who changes all the time is not very trustworthy nor has the backbone and ability to make change happen themselves.
Short and sweet but very powerful lesson! Thanks!

Ohhh, I love it.

God never changes, but He changes everything!

What a great post, Michelle! I like your word lessons : )

I'm sending up prayers for you today. Just because.

You've blessed me.
