God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?
I reflect on the places God has brought me – from North Carolina into many strange cities where I didn’t know anyone. Unto strange cities where I thought I knew someone – only to realize I knew them not. They loved me not and in worst case scenarios – they liked me not. I think back and one thing that remains unchanged is that God loved me.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Unconditionally, consistently. His love for me didn’t wane even when my faith waned. When I found myself in terrible despicable pathways – he still loved me so. Guiding me and bringing me always back to his glory. I have declared a new peace for my life. To love God the way he has loved me – unconditionally. To put him where he always placed me – first. To do for him what he has done for me. Die. Serve. Offer up my first fruits the way he offered up his first son. God is good and God is holy. His way is good and perfect. To God be the Glory. Amen.
