Every Good and Perfect Gift
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 (NIV)
James 1:17 is one of my favorite scriptures to read, especially when I begin to doubt my purpose or faith. I am always reminded that our God does not change and is always the same, as he was yesterday and every day until the end of time. I know I can always trust and hope in Jesus. I, personally, have fallen to putting my faith and trust in humans. Unfortunately, humans, including myself, are not perfect. All humans, all of them, will fail us because we all sin and fall short of the glory of God. It is hard to remember that when someone we love hurts or disappoints us. But, God promises to never leave nor forsake us. What an amazing God we have that gives us beautiful gifts/talents, and promises us unconditional, unfailing love. I am grateful for His mercy and the sacrifice of His only son, Jesus. Amen.
