Everlasting Love

Jeremiah 31: 3 The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. 

Everlasting love is not something that one should ignore or take for granted. No matter how many times we fail, you love us. No matter how many times I make a mistake you love us. No matter how many times we forget to take out the garbage, wash the car, spill milk, jaywalk across the street, you still love us. Father thank you for your love. Thank you for your everlasting love, Father.  

Psalm 145:8 says, “The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. Father you ae so gracious when we fail. In this world we have been taught that failure is a dreadful thing. However, that is so not true. Failure is an opportunity to learn. Failure is an opportunity to grow. In your compassion, and great mercy, you saw fit during our pain to provide yet another opportunity for us to grow and learn. Thank you, Father. The enemy would have us concentrate on the failure, the humiliation, the disappointment. However, you saw fit to teach yet again. You saw fit to comfort our disappointment with compassion. You saw fit to extend mercy and not anger. Thank you, Father. In the midst you saw fit to lend us your strength. To show us you. To teach us to lean on you. To give us another opportunity to strengthen our relationship with you by gifting us a situation whereby the only choice was to lean on you Father. In our strength we fail or make it through, sparingly scars and all. However, in you Father, in you, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, as stated in Philippians 4:13. 

Romans 4:5 states, “Who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification.” Your everlasting love Father, so great, you gave your best. You gave your son for our lives Father. Thank you. You gave your one and only son Father. Your everlasting love. Your everlasting love is an extension of your son. The love He embodied to take on our human form. To feel our pain, sadness, and other humanness. Father we thank you for your everlasting love.  

Romans 9:16, says, “So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.” Thank you for your merciful everlasting love. There is nothing that we did to earn it. There is nothing that we can do to forsake your everlasting love. However, your everlasting love. The reward, gift, blessing for being a child of the highest King. Our failures do not define us. Our failures are an opportunity for miraculous miracles. This world teaches us to get degrees and follow this set of rules and life shall turn out all right. However, this is a trick a tool of the enemy. Life is not promised to not have things that fail, that simply does not work out. However, Father your everlasting love that you show to us by extending your mercy makes the failure all right. It makes the pain a little bearable. It enables us to see that the sadness will not last always. It reminds us that our Jesus who died on the cross, nails through His hands. Stretched as if to be broken into two. That, if He can go through that. Nothing, nothing on this earth is comparable. It may feel like it in the midst. However, it truly does not compare. So, thank you Father for your everlasting love.
