I stood at the shore and watched the sun glint off the water. It transformed the ocean into a thousand sparkling jewels of your glory. The gentle lapping of the waves washed over my feet, constant, seemingly relentless. A reminder of your love.
The steadfast love of the Lord endures forever.
Each small wave hits afresh. The water is in constant motion and the droplets forming them are both new and old. The constant motion is like the changes in my life, unrelenting and never ending. How much more so is your love!
Each new crash comes gilded with your mercies, crested with your grace. Sometimes the waves are small and only douse me with spray. Sometimes, they knock me off my feet, plunging me downward.
I will change. The shore will change. My circumstances will change.
But your love is unchangeable and forever.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.” ~ Lamentations 3:22-24
Thanks be to God and His never ending, never stopping love for me and for you.
