My thoughts 21 years after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Towers
Some things never change, that’s how it seems
It seemed that Queen Elizabeth would reign forever
It seemed like our city would never falter, never slip back again to the way it was
It seemed like those towers would stand for lifetime after lifetime after
Some things never change that’s how it seemed
Some things never change, that’s what we’ve heard
We’ve heard that time heals all wounds but 21 years later it hasn’t
We’ve heard that good things come to those who wait & yet we still wait these 21 years after the fact
We’ve heard that we will understand it by and by and still it makes no sense, it leaves us speechless
Something’s never change that what we’ve heard.
Some things never change, that’s what we wish
We wish that our resolves would not wane and we’d truly never forget
We wish that our lives would remain the same, our familiar, would stay familiar, our family and friends would not move away or move on.
We wish our heroes would stay our heroes, that they’d never become frail or fall yet father time waits for no one
Some things never change that is what we wish.
In truth, almost everything changes, people, places, things, they all change
There is a Someone, not a something, a Someone that never changes.
This Someone is not a king or queen, that Someone is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords
This Someone is not affected by 21 years, 21 centuries or even 21 millenniums
This Someone transcends time and eternity.
This Someone is the same, yesterday, today and forever
This Someone promises us that His steadfast love never changes, that His mercies never end and are the same every morning, that His faithfulness is great
So today, 21 years after our very foundations were shook, we need not seek stability in what seems, in what we’ve heard or in what we wish
But in the One who is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Immortal, the Invisible Almighty God, who is our Savior.
The One who never changes.
The One we can count on. Amen
