Won’t ever

When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself.
ENTER THE SILENCE.
Bow in prayer.
Don’t ask questions: WAIT for HOPE to appear.
Don’t run from trouble. Take if full-face. The “worst” is never the worst.
Why? Because the Master won’t ever walk out and fail to return.

– Lamentations 3:28-31 MSG

Let this scripture passage wash over you.

Now let’s settle on the last sentence.

… the Master won’t ever walk out and fail to return.

Raise your hand if an underlying fear is being left behind, seemingly rejected, abandoned.  I think we can all admit that, in our most vulnerable places, we have a fear of everyone walking out on us and being left…

Alone.

BUT We Do Not Have To Fear!

God does not leave us high and dry. He holds us close and never leaves.

God does not look at us and think, not good enough. He calls us beloved.

God never thinks of us as a burden. He leans in and delights in every moment with us.

Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.

– James 1:17 NLT

God is the same – yesterday, today and tomorrow. He is the source of light and truth in our lives.

So when life gets heavy, and hard to take, enter the silence and allow this word – this truth – to be poured over you and into you.

… the Master won’t ever walk out and fail to return.
