God's Love never fails.............

Perhaps the most painful thing is to have a person behave in a manor or outright say...., “I don’t love you anymore.” Those words end relationships, break hearts, and shatter dreams. Often, people who have been betrayed guard themselves against future pain by deciding not to trust anyone’s love again. That settled conviction may even include the love of God.

The remarkable thing about God’s love for us is His promise that it will never end. The prophet Jeremiah experienced devastating circumstances that left him emotionally depleted (Lam. 3:13-20). His own people rejected his repeated calls to respond to God’s love and follow Him. At a low point, Jeremiah said, “My strength and my hope have perished from the Lord” (v.18).

Yet, in his darkest hour Jeremiah considered God’s unfailing love and wrote, “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I hope in Him!’” (Lam. 3:22-24). A person may vow to love us forever yet fail to keep that promise, but God’s love remains steadfast and sure. “He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you” (Deut. 31:6). That’s a love we can trust.

So.....having said that....... If we trust and believe God loves us......that would then create a love in us to ~ forgive... have hope..... trust... and even love the one or someones that have hurt us.... all in that order.
Today.... I challenge you to start by FORGIVING someone that has hurt you!!!   Have HOPE that you can TRUST them again.... then let God's LOVE shine through you to them.
With God... and only with God... you can put relationships back together.   A parent and child... a husband and wife... siblings.... best friends!!!
God's Love NEVER fails!!!

have a GREAT day!! and blessings
