Reflection: God’s love is steadfast and His faithfulness reaches out to all of us.
I have a young friend who faced major surgery and decision-making. She lives in NYC; her family in Seattle, WA. Her bright, happy spirit amazed me. She remains steadfast with a faith that she will come through this surgery with renewed good health. This all took place just a week before Christmas.
I feel like a bystander cheering her on from the bleachers. May God’s steadfast love protect and heal her. We read this in Psalms and many other Bible passages. I do believe in His infinite caring!
