Unfailing Love . True Love . Painful Choices.
I finally understood what true love meant...love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.” Nicholas Sparks, Dear John
I came across an entry in my Bible Journal/the Real Deal Book... from the 13th of January. "Terry has taken excellent care of me except for crazy driving. He is my true love." I have known this man since I was eleven years old. I feel after all these years I know almost all facets of his personality. Being so sure of his love... his unwavering care to protect me and provide for me fills my heart and every facet of my life.
Forty plus times in the Bible the words God's UNFAILING LOVE is there for us. Now it is told over and over in many other words of his love for us woven throughout the entire Bible... but 'unfailing' is pretty basic that it is there ALL the time and He will not ever fail in loving us, no matter what we think or do. I hear the words, I read the words, but I need to feel secure in my heart that he is my Protector and my Father that loves me. He is my constant. I need to rest in that assurance and knowledge with Him, just like I am so sure of Terry's unfailing love.
Can we get there in our lives? Can we let go of everything that we are dealing with and throw up our hands and let it go and rest in Him?
Psalm 130:7 " Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption."
