No Matter What

Psalm 31:16 - I hate those who pay regard to worthless idols, but I trust in the Lord.

Psalm 107:8 - Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men!

Isaiah 61:10 - I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has cover re me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Jeremiah 31:2-3 - Thus says the Lord: "The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel fought for rest, the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you."

Dear God, Thank You for the no matter what kind of love! If only people could learn how to love like that as well how much better and nicer this world would be. Instead of claiming to practice grace and then only practicing it if the person feels the other one deserves it or claiming to love someone but then at the first sign of any trouble turning away from the person. Practicing love and grace that is no matter what and not performance-based is real. Genuine. The no matter what love and grace brings comfort and healing. Repair. And joy. It is harder to practice. But it is also wonderful to perfect. Oh that we would all desire to show others love no matter what. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
