Living in a military neighborhood is tough.
On one hand, being military, people’s yards are uncluttered and well-kept. Neighbors are sociable and tolerant of differences. Cookouts are neighborhood affairs.
On the other hand, deployments leave loved ones behind. Last minute hugs, that final kiss before the plane is boarded, the children waving to the sky as long as they can see the contrail.
We feel abandoned by those we love, even if we know they have no choice but to do as the government commands.
God assures us his arms never leave us. He is there in every trial we face, every situation that threatens to consume us, and during the lonely moments when we feel abandoned.
Jeremiah 31:3 says:
“The Lord [says,] I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.”
Reread those four words: “with an everlasting love.”
Is your gizzard sparking with God’s glory? Are you ready to shout God’s love from the top of a radio tower? Do you feel you can hardly keep it in?
Let’s say it again. God loves us with a love that is everlasting. It never ends, doesn’t fade, will not go away, and is available 24/7.
God assures us his faithfulness is for always, and will continue in an unbroken line until the end of existence.
When we can’t see past the moment, God looks at forever, and his arms are still around us.
We are eternally held in God’s unbroken embrace.
