God does not fail

I am constantly reminded that relationships will fail me, but God never does. His love for me is unfailing, it never ceases, and it is not conditional. He does not love me because of where I live or how I dress or who my friends are. He just loves me because I am His and I am created in His image. Did you know that you, too, are created in God's image?? Have you ever thought of the implications and how much He must love each of us?

I need to be reminded daily that the ONLY relationship that will never let me down is the one I have with our Lord. Marriages fail, friends let you down, children disappoint, but GOD NEVER FAILS US!!! He is always there for me. He is not just willing to put things aside to see me, He is there WAITING for me. He wants me to turn to Him throughout the day and to have total and complete dependence on Him alone.

I love people. I love being with people, giving to people, and yes, even pleasing people. Those things bring me great joy. Those things can also lead to a lot of disappointment as others let me down or don't care for me in the same way. What a gift that the things of this earth are nothing compared to the unfailing relationship I have with Jesus Christ, our Heavenly Father!!!
