Do not be deceived… there is no variation or shadow due to change. James 1:16-27 As the sun “rises and sets” so does the shadow reflect from the body; sometimes in front and sometimes it’s behind us. Thank you God, for regardless of the shadows reflected by my actions and choices I’ve made, your love for me never changes. Guide me daily to forever be a doer of your Word, so that as this earth that is the body moves, I may never forget the sun.
Life itself is a gift. While it’s true that we don’t all come into this world under the same circumstances, it is also true that regardless of the circumstance, each birth has purpose. As we are trying to figure out our own purpose we sometimes squander our lives, some more severely than others. It’s not a deal breaker! Even on the cloudiest of days, the sun rises every morning. As long as there is true light in our lives there is purpose. With God we have the capacity, strength and courage to live a purpose driven life.
Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. In fulfilment of his own purpose he gave us birth by the word of truth, so that we would become a kind of first fruits of his creatures. James 1:16-27
