Letter to a friend:
You lose a job.
You lose a spouse.
You might even lose a child.
You lose car keys, your wallet, and your debit card.
If you’re lucky, you lose weight.
Some folks lose hair.
You might even lose your mind.
But lose God? No sir.
You might lose heart.
You may lose the will to fight.
But lose God? No.
God’s never lost. He is right where He’s always been. Standing at the door, knocking, asking for an invite. Desiring to come in and sit down and and fellowship.
He just wants to be with you. To walk with you through triumph and tragedy.
God wants to stand by your side through success and struggle.
He is never intimidated by our sin and He never falters when we lack faith.
God is still God, every moment of every day.
He never fails. He never changes. He never gives up or gives out.
God wasn’t attracted to you and didn’t choose you because you were big and important—the fact is, there was almost nothing to you. He did it out of sheer love, keeping the promise he made to your ancestors. God stepped in and mightily bought you back out of that world of slavery, freed you from the iron grip of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know this: God, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations.
We lose sleep.
We lose battles.
We lose teeth.
We lose homes.
But lose God?
