The Same Yesterday, and Today, and Forever

You don’t know how many times people have told me that I need to be consistent. It became a broken record in my ears. I would try to be steady but something would always happen. I would never try to be a screw up, but it just seemed to happen to me. If I got angry then I would be as big a screw up as possible. I never tried to compare my sons to each other. Boy, would I get how my brother did this or that. Just look how well he is doing. I wanted to throw up. Consistency was always my goal. I wanted to be able to achieve things in life. Especially things that were near and dear to me. When I was 12 years old, I built a swing made from a car tire. I tied the tire to a rope and hung it in my favorite tree about 4 feet off the ground. I got a 6 foot ladder and sat on the top holding the tire. I jump on to the tire and swung out. When the tire was about 15 feet off the ground the rope broke with me in it. I hit the ground on my back. I woke up about 10 minutes later. I definitely had a concussion. It cause all sort of problems for me. In particular, it cause dyslexia, problems with hand and eye coordination. It took a lot of work all through high school to correct this. When I got to college I wanted consistency. As hard as I looked for it in this world, I never found it. It was only when I met God did I find consistency. You see God is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. He doesn’t change at all. God is there for us all the time. And as a side note, God healed me of Dyslexia.
