I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. Jeremiah 31:3 NRSV

Thought

Faithfulness is the power of everlasting love. Faithfulness is the pledge of marriage for a life built together to last forever, “until death do us part.” Faithfulness is the absolute nature of God. You emerge from the spiritual and emotional isolation of grief when you realize with absolute certainty that God is faithful.

Prayer

God, your faithfulness has saved my life. Through my grief you have continued to hear and answer the cries of my heart. I am grateful for your everlasting love. Amen.

Assurance

God’s faithfulness is beyond all thought or human imagination.
