His Faithful Love
“His Faithful Love”
By Zach Wood
Psalm 107:1 (NLT)
“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His faithful love endures forever.”
Being the parent of two children has taught me so much through the years. As much as I strive to be a Godly father and role model to them, I find there are so many days that I’m selfish or lose my temper with them. I have a good days spending time with them, then days when I feel irritated about every little thing they do. Each day I ask God to give me strength to be the best parent I can be for them to show His love.
One thing that truly amazes me is, even though I get angry and frustrated with them, they never stop wanting to hug me, give me kisses and cuddle with me. There’s never a day that one of them doesn’t want me to hold and hug them. I think of all the times that I’ve lost patience with them for one reason or another, and yet they still know that I love them and want to be with them. Daddy may have a bad day and get cranky, but they know I still love them.
It just amazes me that these girls know, without a doubt, that I love them. They want me to hold them and cuddle with them. I cherish those times. They know, even in the times that I get upset with them, that I still love them. They’ve learned to know that I will love them regardless of what they do. I’m glad they feel this way. Again, it amazes me. I am thankful for that affection they still show me regardless of how I sometimes am toward them.
Every one of these moments, I think about how amazing God’s love for me is even though I disobey Him each day in some way. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t do something that He may not be happy with me about. But, you know what? He still loves me and I know that. I know that His faithful love will endure forever.
Each day, to know my Father loves me and that His faithful love will never fail me is so reassuring. His promise to love me brings me to praise Him endlessly. I know His faithful love will endure forever. Just as my kids know that their daddy will love them regardless of how they act sometimes, our Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us regardless of how we act sometimes. His faithful love will endure forever!
