Prayers and Promises: Hebrews 13:5

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.
