Faithful Love

by Linda Harville

Lamentations 3:22-24:  “Because of the loving devotion of the Lord we are not consumed, for his mercies never fail. They are new every morning, great is Your Faithfulness! The Lord is my portions, says my soul, therefore I will hope in Him”

This passage, written by Jeremiah, gives hope to the hopeless. Nothing is certain in this world except the faithful love of a merciful Father.

During this time of uncertainty, I see God’s love everywhere. People are kinder, more generous, helpful,  prayerful. The “All about me” is being replaced with, “How can we help each other?” Family members call more often, what a blessing!  I pray it doesn’t stop.

As I read the passage in Lamentations, the song’ “Faithful Love” comes to mind. Stanza one reads, “Faithful love flowing down from the thorn-covered crown, Makes me whole, saves my soul, Washes whiter than snow. Faithful love calms each fear, reaches down, dries each tear; Holds my hand when I can’t stand on my own.” May we dwell on the Faithfulness of God, His love is everlasting, and we belong to Him!

As Daniel did, we are stopping three times a day to pray for our world to be healed, for a spiritual revival in this land, and for complete dependence on our Lord. How thankful I am for the power of prayer!
