Goodbye’s are Tough

Goodbye’s are tough. Change is tough. But like a wise man once told me, “change isn’t always bad, it’s just different.” And that’s true. And even though I have a lot of changes going on in my life right now, my God is always the same.

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

That is a promise that He gives us. No matter how out of control life seems, God is the same. He will never change and He will always be right by my side each and every step of this crazy journey I walk. And you know what else? He has good plans for me. Plans that I could never even put together right now even if I tried. And His plans are great. And I may not understand them right now, and that’s okay. I don’t have to understand why God is taking 3 very important people out of my life. People who have helped me to become the woman I am today and to challenge and strengthen my faith. And why did He choose to do it all within 10 days of each other? I don’t know and I may never know. But I rest in His promises that His plans are good. And even though I’m torn and sad, I trust Him with my life. And His plans for my future. Because I know He desires good.


Jeff was the first to leave…



Laura was the second…


And Rachel was the third.

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”                                          ~Hebrews 13:5
