The Lord foils the plan of nations,
frustrates the designs of peoples.
But the plan of the Lord stands forever,
wise designs through all generations.
Things are constantly changing. Our nation's leadership changes every few years with the results of the elections. The entire governments of many countries change. Society's view on many moral and social issues have changed over the past decades. The structure of my family has changed over the past few years as me and my siblings grow up and moved away from home. My day to day life has changed over the past few years as I graduated college, got a job and got married. Each year the seasons change bringing about the end of summer and the start of a new school year.
Everything is changing.
But one thing always stays the same, the Lord.
We know that the love of the Lord and his teachings will stand forever. The teachings of the Catholic Church will stand forever. Not because they are stubborn and unwilling to adapt for new times but because they are wise and perfect for all generations. The teachings of Jesus are not meant to be changed to fit with the current times but to withstand the changing generations. They are meant to be a steadfast truth through changing generations. Amid all the changing that we experience in our world, our nation, our family and within ourselves it is comforting to know that one thing will always stay the same.
It is amazing to think that such a plan could be created that would be so perfect as to withstand the true test of time.
Dear Lord, Help those who are struggling with change to find comfort in the unchanging love of the Lord.
