Our devotion for this week: “Unfailing Love” – “‘For no one is abandoned by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he also shows compassion because of the greatness of his unfailing love.’ (NLT) (Lamentations 3:31-32)
“As parents, do we take enjoy punishing our children? No! But we do it because we love our children. In the same way, it is also painful when we receive punishment from the Lord. Take joy though that you have a heavenly Father who is unfailing in His love for you. Because He takes the time to punish you, He will also take the time to bless you with love.” Download this app to get your daily devotions: http://jctrois.com http://www.jctrois.com/dailybibledevotion/devotion.html?devo=M6KSYQDxQc
Merry Christmas! God bless each one of you this week as always! Pray for the ones without family, those who are homeless and our military that can not be home.
