Shepherd's Voice is a Christian women's quartet specializing in sacred music, both 
traditional and contemporary.

          Over the past several months I have thought a lot about the word change. There are so 
   many things in our lives that change, some of a more personal nature than others. Our 
   country has recently experienced a change in our government leaders.  How much of a 
   change this will create has yet to be seen. The weather changes from season to season, 
   and from day to day for that matter.  

           In our personal lives we have change all the time. Perhaps we have changed jobs,
   moved to another location, perhaps a relationship has changed. Change is something that 
   people sometimes have a hard time coping with.  But as Christians, we know for sure that 
   there is one thing that will never change and that is our Lord. He loved us so much that He 
   died on the cross... and that will never change. I want to repeat that sentence – He loved us 
   so much that He died for you and for me. ​​  Can you grasp the fact that someone loved you 
   so much that they died for you?  His mercy, His grace and His forgiveness for us will never 
   change. If anything changes, it is us. Perhaps we have drifted away from the Lord. There is 
   an old song that the choir used to sing called “It Isn’t God Who’s Moved.” God will never 
   change, his love is everlasting and his mercy endures forever.  

          As we begin 2017 – perhaps all of us should remember that God is still in control and 
   that has not changed and never will change!
