Always Loving & Faithful
“Always Loving & Faithful”
By Zach Wood
“Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord.”
One thing I always like about reading the book of Psalms is that I am encouraged and lifted up. It seems no matter what chapter or verses I read, I am always inspired by the words that come through. We all need inspiration. We all need to remember that God is awesome and that life is truly precious.
This past weekend, I was reminded how precious life is. I’ve had some heart conditions in the past year and it resurfaced again this past Saturday, sending me to the ER to get my heart shocked/cardioverted back to regular rhythm. The whole morning I just couldn’t believe what was happening and that I was now a patient. I’m usually the one going to visit people.
While the procedure went well, there was still risk and I was reminded of how precious life is that God gives to us all. His love is great and amazing to us and His faithfulness is always present. He brings us through hard times and strengthens us. Hopefully through these times, we also grow wiser and change whatever issues in our lifestyle that may be causing us problems.
God’s great love and faithfulness is present, no matter what we are going through. We don’t always understand why we experience some of the things we do, but that never changes the fact that He is Lord and that His love endures forever. We are to praise Him always. He is always loving and always faithful.
I hope we are all thankful for God’s great and amazing love and faithfulness today.
