An old Scottish woman who was alone for the greater part of each day was asked, “What do you do during the day?”
“Well,” she replied, “I get my hymn book, and I have a little hymn of praise to the Lord.” “Then,” she added, “I get my Bible and let the Lord speak to me. When I am tired of reading, and I cannot sing anymore, I just sit still and let the Lord love me.”
The length of love is often celebrated. We congratulate those who have been married for twenty-five or fifty years. In this day of trial marriages and easy divorces, couples who experience lasting love are somewhat rare.
But God’s love lasts!
The love of God doesn’t diminish with the passing of time. His love for you and me is as strong as it was yesterday, last month or last year. And this in spite of our many failures along the way.
That’s only part of the story.
God’s love is everlasting. He’ll love us as much in ten thousand years as today. Our walk with Him can be bathed in love through all our days on earth and then when we arrive in heaven immediately after death, His loving arms will greet us home.
Many long for love. Life has been hard and sometimes despair has become an unwelcome companion. That may describe your life.
Here’s good news: GOD LOVES YOU! And His love never changes. Respond to His love and His lovingkindness will be your experience forever!
