For great is His love toward us, and faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord. – (Psalm 117:2, NIV)
For His unfailing love is great, and it is intended for us, and His faithfulness to His promises knows no end. Praise the Eternal! – (Psalm 117:2, VOICE)
The Lord’s love and faithfulness to us if evident everywhere if we simply slow down to look and listen. Yesterday was a huge a-ha sort of day, as the Lord so clearly showed me how He never leaves us nor forsakes us, as He surrounded me and encouraged me all day, with treasured friends to make what could have been a trying day, reasonable. From the moment I woke to just before I went to sleep, I had countless reminders of His love and faithfulness to me both yesterday, and throughout the past many months of what I have been walking through. He has gone before me and stayed with me, and provided people to be tangible extensions of His hands and heart. His love endures forever, and a lifetime is not nearly long enough to praise Him for all that He has done! May we each remember how great His love is for us all, and that the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Let every heart give Him thanks and praise.
How great His love is,
Poured out upon us;
Our Savior, Jesus.
Always, He’s for us,
His love that endures;
True to His promise,
Our hope that’s secure.
All praise to the Lord,
From whom blessings flow;
May all our thanks show.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your love for us is far greater than we can even begin to grasp. Thank You that You are faithful forever. Thank You that our praise to You is received as an offering of thanks. Forgive us for not recognizing the depth of Your love and how eternal is Your faithfulness. Teach us to trust in Your promises. Show us how to love those around us so that they might see Your faithfulness and love through our words and deeds. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we praise You through all that we say and do, by honoring You. Amen.
As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. – James 5:11
