We have visited the Stockyards in Ft Worth before but not in a few years. Yesterday we returned and our middle daughter and her family were with us along with Danny’s cousins and their grands.
We discovered that our favorite Mexican restaurant was no longer there. And the leaders are being in more hotels and parking. I guess things change for progress but it’s a shame that what we used to enjoy so much will be changed even more in the next couple of years.
Oh beloved, are you reeling from changes going on? You liked the old ways just fine. You don’t really need bigger and better I get that. Progress isn’t always our cup of tea.
God says if you look at the Stockyards today that whole area is nothing like it once was. Pigs in the basement and thousands of other livestock were all filling the buildings where we now enjoy the shopping and sights and sounds. God wants us to see how every time of our lives is changing. And we have to learn to live with change – even make friends with it.
You beloved are a work in progress as well. Isn’t that wonderful? Old habits give way to new anointing. Everything you’ve held dear in the past has to be offered to God with His plans in mind. He is trustworthy and knows exactly what He is doing. Glory!
God loves you and He’s for you. Hang on for the ride and cling only to Jesus. It may look or feel difficult but God’s progress always leads to His best. Rejoice that you get to walk in the precepts of the Only One who keeps you totally secure in times of change.

Deuteronomy 31: 8 The Lord himself will lead you and be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you, so do not lose courage or be afraid.
Numbers 23: 19 God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
