We have all experienced failure at some point in time. Maybe your car fails you, always breaking down on the side of the road leaving you stranded. A marriage that hadn’t stood the test of time, leaving you heart broken without the strength to try again. Showing up at work only to find out that the doors are chained shut leaving you without money or security. I can keep going on with mountains of examples but I’m thinking you catch my drift. I will let you in on a little secret that I’ve learned over the past couple of years. There’s many things in life that can fail you and also many things that can leave you feeling like a failure. There is however one love that will never fail you and that is GOD’S LOVE!!!! If you get a chance please read through Psalms 136, you can take great comfort in knowing that the God of the entire universe has a love that is unfailing. “Spoiler alert”, the ending, Psalms 136:26 says, Praise God in heaven! God’s love never fails. If you feel like this world has failed you, or that you are a failure please read it over and over. You are loved so deeply, like you have been loved before.
