Changing Your Mind

By Lois Parker Edstrom

Do you ever change your mind? I do. When I go to the ice cream shop I think I’m going to order a strawberry ice cream cone and then, as I look at all the choices, I change my mind and order chocolate chip mint.

When you get dressed for school you might decide to wear a red tee shirt and then change your mind and put on a blue one.

Your mom may plan to fix macaroni and cheese for dinner and then decide to cook spaghetti instead.

We change our minds all the time and that’s okay. A change of mind becomes a problem when someone promises something and then changes their mind and decides against it – that can be disappointing.

The Bible tells us that God does not change his mind about who he chooses to be a part of his family. The Bible says “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable” (11:29). Irrevocable is a big word that means not able to be changed. God calls everyone to be a part of his family and gives us the gift of his love. That will never change. It is a done deal. His love for us is irrevocable. We can count on it and know that God will not change his mind.
