We are spiritual beings on a human journey to discover compassion.

Have mercy on me, God, in accord with your merciful love.
In today’s scripture verse, “merciful love” is sometimes translated as “unfailing love.”
God is love (1 John 4:8).
Love does not fail.
It will never relent.
When it feels like you’re alone and in the dark – you aren’t.
Jesus also felt alone in the garden of Gethsemane when he felt the depths of human anguish as his crucifixion loomed.
He later cried out to God on the cross, “Why have you abandoned me?”
But Jesus was actually quoting the first line of Psalm 22.
The psalm goes on to praise God stating that God “did not turn away from me, but heard me when I cried out” (Psalm 22:25).
When it feels like we are farthest from God, perhaps God is actually intimately with us…sharing in our pain and helping us through the darkness.
That’s what Love does.
It carries you through the struggles to new life – every time.
