March Is Here

March is here. March is the month of roller coaster weather. The month that politicians decided we should change our clocks. The month that St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated.

Where I live, it has felt more like March than February for most of the past month. We had thunderstorms Sunday evening.

It was in March 1997 that it was my privilege to participate in a weekend training at my church in preparation for a ministry trip to Romania n June 1997. We started the weekend with a small thunderstorm that came before a sudden change to snow. We ended up with thirteen inches of snow.

Do you enjoy sudden changes? For me, it depends on what the sudden change is. A doctor telling a person that they need surgery is not welcome news. I experienced that recently. It was not a fun time.

Being told one is hired for a job is very welcome news. I was asked last night if I would take on one more class with the college. The extra income will be nice.

Changes that are sudden to us are not sudden to God. He knows what our needs are before we ask him. Jesus taught that in Matthew 6:8

Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

It is also comforting to remember that Jesus never changes as Hebrews 13:8 says:

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore.

So March is here with all of its changes. May your month be full of blessings.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. I agree that sudden changes can be both positive and negative, and it’s important to remember that God knows our needs and is always with us through these changes. I hope that your March is filled with blessings as well, and thank you for the reminder to trust in God’s provision and care.

  2. March weather seems a bit more stable in Ohio than Montana. While I’m not a fan of sudden change (who is?), I appreciate how God continues to strengthen me when life throws a nasty curveball.
