In today’s Take Five, Lara Buchanan gives us a simple reminder that, during COVID-19, when we’ve experienced the fragility of human life and feel exposed with little control over life’s circumstances, God’s love is permanent; despite all that can change, God’s love never fails.
When we’re faced with inordinately and overwhelmingly terrible circumstances, when bombs are falling everywhere, where it feels like nowhere is safe, we cry out for something permanent, something that won’t fail us.
I think many of us have felt that sort of frailty in this moment. Whether we feel like the ground beneath us could give way, or something could fall on us and crush us, or whether it’s just us who will stumble and fall. That sense of fragility is common, especially now.
Certainly, human love, sadly, often does fail, time and again, but there is a love that won’t fail us; there is a love that will never let us down, or let us go.
