Perseverance
The week before last we were in Auckland, staying with my daughter and I was amazed at her devotion toward her daughter. Miss H is totally dependent on people, (having a severe form of Cerebral Palsy) she’s doing everything for her. Her mother has persevered for a total of 11 years with her and I cannot see her giving up no matter what.
Seeing this reminds me of what God is like with us. In a sense we are like miss H, being totally dependent on God for all we need.  OK he does not have to feed, dress, or wash us, but God will never leave us or forsake us no matter what we are like or what we think we deserve.
He will supply all our needs through Jesus just as my daughter supplies all of the needs of Miss H.
