As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him;
for He knows how we are formed,
He remembers that we are dust.
The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and it's place remembers it no more.
But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord's love is with those who fear him,
and His righteousness with their children's children -
with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.
~ Psalm 103:13-18
We are so blessed to have a Heavenly Father who understands us through and through. He remembers that we are human, He knows we are going to stumble at times. And yet He loves us anyway. He proved that love by providing a way of salvation for us through Jesus, because he knew we would be completely unable to save ourselves. This is a love we can depend on no matter what is going on around us. All he asks is that we remember to keep His commands and that when we do fail, as we will, we come to Him for forgiveness and then continue to walk in His ways. What a wonderful, loving God we serve!
