From The Darkness Into The Light

Absolute, Sovereign, Almighty Love

“The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.” (Exodus 34:6)

God abounds in steadfast love and faithfulness.

Two images come to my mind:

  1. The heart of God is like an inexhaustible spring of water that bubbles up love and faithfulness at the top of the mountain.

Truth in Palmyra

Whatever our trouble, Jesus is always waiting and willing to hear us; why don’t we take all of our problems to Him? From Nikki at Thoughts of a Preacher’s Daughter.


From the post:

Take all you have to the altar and leave it there. God is a very present help in times of trouble and he will never forsake you. He goes before you in the presence of your enemies and removes the source of your pain. There is nothing too hard too filthy so unbearable that he would dare leave you alone. Our God is faithful and he won’t fail us. Be of good courage and faith as you take him at his word. I will never leave you nor forsake you even to the ends of this world!

Love and Blessings
