Love That Lasts

Has there been love in your life

that didn’t last?

 

It would seem that covenant

secured your love

 

but it wasted away

and crumbled to apathy and regret?

 

And it made you wonder

whether there was such a thing

 

as forever love?

 

Your heart grew cold

to love

 

And why wouldn’t God

be just like all the rest?

 

BUT HE ISN’T

 

He is the only one

who keeps His covenants

 

and can be trusted

with your heart

 

Jesus,

Groom,

fills empty hearts

 

with relationship

with Himself

 

He holds tender hearts

with care

 

and mends the deep places

that ache

 

But in order to KNOW

this love

 

you must take His hand

and walk forward in love

 

promised

and surrendered

 

to Love that lasts

 

Love that is not

like the rest

For your Creator will be your husband; the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is His name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth.

– Isaiah 54:5 (NLT)

 

Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    with my whole heart, I will praise His holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    may I never forget the good things He does for me.
He forgives all my sins
    and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death
    and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things.
    My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

The Lord gives righteousness
    and justice to all who are treated unfairly.

He revealed His character to Moses
    and his deeds to the people of Israel.
The Lord is compassionate and merciful,
    slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
He will not constantly accuse us,
    nor remain angry forever.
He does not punish us for all our sins;
    He does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.
For His unfailing love toward those who fear Him
    is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
He has removed our sins as far from us
    as the east is from the west.
The Lord is like a father to His children,
    tender and compassionate to those who fear Him.
For He knows how weak we are;
    He remembers we are only dust.
Our days on earth are like grass;
    like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
The wind blows, and we are gone—
    as though we had never been here.
But the love of the Lord remains forever
    with those who fear Him.
His salvation extends to the children’s children
    of those who are faithful to his covenant,
    of those who obey His commandments!

The Lord has made the heavens His throne;
    from there He rules over everything.

Praise the Lord, you angels,
    you mighty ones who carry out His plans,
    listening for each of His commands.
Yes, praise the Lord, you armies of angels
    who serve Him and do His will!
Praise the Lord, everything He has created,
    everything in all His kingdom.

Let all that I am praise the Lord.

– Psalm 103 (NLT)

 

…He will say to them, “I have loved you with an everlasting love. That is why I have continued to be faithful to you.”

– Jeremiah 31:3 (NET)
