Two songs that have been in on my mind lately contain that word.
What a word!
Of course, the songs speak of God with that term. Truly, there’s nothing else to which such an adjective can be attached.
And that’s a good thing.
I’ve been taking some comfort these days in the fact that no struggle, circumstance, or feeling that I encounter is everlasting. No enemy, low point, or state of confusion can make that claim. That old saying “This too shall pass”… yeah, it’s true of everything.
Except for One.
And He gets the word “everlasting”, which means that hope always reigns and defeat is never for good, for those who belong to Him.
Some days, I really like that.
