Never Let Me Go
I really REALLY like this photo. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that this photo is probably more geared for the taken people. The people who are in a relationship with someone and it's a message for the other person. "Never Let Me Go." While, it's cute and all... it's not realistic. Often people will let you down and let go. Whether due to time, distance, death... it happens. Sometimes people can't make promises like these. Some people, are exceptions. And that's great. But you can't fully trust someone to never let you go. But you can fully trust God, to never let you go. And thats a beautiful thing. God will NEVER let you go, NEVER let you fall. He'll be there when noone else is. He's a constant in a world of changes. Rely on Him today, not people.
"Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast. "
"Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
"Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of His purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, He confirmed it with an oath... it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure... "
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Nothing can make God hate or despise you, and God is with you through everything even when people aren't. Even in the hard times, God is there and He has a purpose for your life. He sees the bigger picture when you don't. There is ALWAYS hope. Is hope the anchor for your soul?
Give me your thoughts? :)
