Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not

I have an iPhone that I use to write most of the emails with. As I write them, sometimes days in advance, I store them in my email drafts folder. This past week I had occasion to write several up for use this week and next. It seemed like a pretty good plan that has worked well for me until a few nights ago.

Apple updated their operating system not long ago. I waited to let the bugs get worked out before I upgraded it on my phone. This has also worked well for me in the past, allowing me to avoid issues that the first folks to try out the new stuff have to deal with. Well, right in the middle of the process my son calls me; I had forgotten to power the phone off. His call interrupted the back up portion of the process. A accidental click of the mouse in the wrong place then let the program proceed without backing up my data. Long story short: all that I had written and saved ended up lost.

We so often have to deal with changes in the things we are used to and how things operate. At times it can seem like the rules are being made up as we go along! I’m so thankful that I never have to worry about this with God or His Word. He has set out the perfect plan and given us all we need to know about how to go about doing His will and walking in His way. Thank God for His unchanging Word and Way.
