Steadfast Love Never Ceases
by Berni Dymet 

Lam. 3:22-23 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

The other day I received an e-mail out of the blue from a man called Grant.  He and I went to school together over 30 years ago.  In fact, he led me to Jesus back then.

But in the e-mail, he told how he'd strayed away from God - just as I had, it turns out.  It often happens that way - when our youthful idealism is lost to the cares and responsibilities of life - we grow out of the "Jesus thing". 

But then about ten years ago, he went through a major crisis in His life, and discovered Jesus waiting there in the middle of it all.  Again, just as it happened to me.

I sat there thinking about the strange parallels between his life and mine.  And this verse from the book of Lamentations (chapter three, verses 22 and 23) came to my heart.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.  His mercies never come to an end.  They're new every morning - great is your faithfulness.

He never gives up.  Ever.
