Here we go again! For those of you who are Mountaineer football fans, you know what I mean. Coach Rod is again being courted by another university to be their coach. He spoke with the University of Michigan yesterday about their coaching position. It was only a year ago that Mountaineer fans went through the stress of wondering if our beloved coach was going to leave us. He was courted by Alabama and actually offered the coaching position but turned it down. He signed another contract with WVU and has said only just a few days ago that he would not leave WVU. It came as a shock to hear that he was speaking to Michigan. How could he do this to us again???

But it made me start to think about how Coach Rod, no matter how great a coach he is, is only human. Unfortunately, money and prestige talk! And coaches come and go.

Unlike coaches, however, God is ALWAYS there. He doesn't come and go. It doesn't matter how much money we have or don't have. It doesn't matter what our jobs are or how much prestige we have. God is ALWAYS there! If we lose our jobs tomorrow, He will still be there for us. If we get a better job tomorrow, He will be there. If we get a bigger house, He will be there just like He is if we have don't have a house at all! God is in our hearts, not in our wallets or homes or anywhere else - He is in us. It just doesn't matter to God what we do or what we have in life. All that matters to Him is that what we do, we do for His glory. Others should see Him in all that we do and all that we say.

Remember that people come and go in our lives, our surroundings change, our finances change - but God NEVER changes. He is always there for you!! You never have to fear that He will leave you!

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you: He will never leave you nor forsake you."
Deuteronomy 31:6
