Jeremiah 31:3 - ESV ...I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
Something that I have been encouraged by lately is that God is constant. He is always loving me, supporting me, leading me and fighting for me. The Bible says in Hebrews 13:8 that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. What a comforting message that is, in a truly ever-changing world. It is also a pretty cool thought- that God's love will continue for us even throughout all of eternity!
*Have you recently been disappointed by someone who was close to you? Maybe you had a Best Friend who pledged to be your BFF FOREVER! You thought that nothing could ever separate you from your friend...but something did. Something happened, and now you have lost that friend that you used to do everything with.
*Maybe you were disappointed in your Mom or Dad. They were supposed to always be there for you. They were supposed to be the one's that you could count on. You should have been able to invite your friends over to your house, because you had awesome parents that you could trust. But...they disappointed you. Maybe they got a divorce? Perhaps they never cheer you on at the games that are important to you, or they never support you in those things that you value the most. Maybe they simply never have time for you.
*Perhaps you have been broken-hearted by a boyfriend. He was the one who really made you feel pretty and valuable. You did all the right things to make him happy and show him just how much you loved him, but he kept pushing you away. He eventually said the words that you knew in your gut were coming, but you never wanted to hear- "I think we need to take a break". You had your entire future already planned out with this guy. You can prove it too, because its all over your Pinterest. But, he broke your heart, and at times it feels like he ruined the future that you were so looking forward to.
*Human beings will disappoint you. They cannot always be there for you. They will turn their backs on you instead of fighting for you. They will not always be faithful- simply because they are human. Just like you. We make mistakes. We aren't the most consistent beings out there. THIS is why you need to build your life around someone who cannot disappoint you. You need to build your life around a man who literally loved you so much that he gave his life for you. He is constantly going out of his way, to pursue you and remind you that YOU ARE LOVED. Do not push him away. Embrace his everlasting love today.
