One of the criteria for a big 'ol chunk of ice to be defined as a "glacier" is that it's moving. It may only be moving three inches a year (as this glacier, pictured near the top of the distant mountain), but it is moving. The result of glacial movements - even if their movements are gradual and slow - can be massive change. Environments, ecosystems, habitats, climates and landscapes are transformed as glaciers move through them. It may take time, but the changes are often so severe that almost everything is different after a glacier has passed.
We all know that things sometimes change quickly. In fact, it sometimes feels like everything changed overnight, but most of the time things change slowly and it feels like the biggest transitions take the longest.
The changes GOD is bringing may take time, but HE is making all things new. GOD's Kingdom is coming and HIS will is going to be done.
GOD is at work and everything GOD is doing is good.... no matter how long GOD takes.
I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.
(By the way, if you want to intentionally give GOD some time to bring good changes to your life, you can pariticipate in GCC's new LIFE FOUNDATIONS discipleship initiative this fall.)
