Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)
This is one verse that I truly can rest in. It is truly a comfort to know that I am NOT alone in this world. Sure, I have my husband and my children…my friends….but they are not guaranteed to be there forever. Only God can make this promise to me. I cannot buy things to make me happy. I cannot accumulate large amounts of things. None of these things will ever truly make me feel safe and content. The Lord’s promise to me… this very promise… is all I need.
Have you ever thought about the future? I have wondered what it would be like someday if my husband passed before me. If one of my children, God forbid, should pass before me. While I will be sad and grieve, life will go on because I will still have the Lord and he will still be with me. No matter how much pain, grief or suffering I have to go through in life, the one constant is that my Savior is always there for me. That is where my hope lies. In this promise.
