A Loyal Love


This song is one I play often.  I recently stumbled upon artist, Lauren Daigle on our local Z88.3 FM in Orlando, Florida (in case you want to listen to a new station on iheart radio).  Or say, “Alexa, play song like artist Lauren Daigle.”

Lauren is a talented female musician.  I have her CD in my car, and I listen to it almost everyday.  Our God loves us in a way that is LOYAL.  “Your love is loyal…”

God wasn’t attracted to you and didn’t choose you because you were big and important—the fact is, there was almost nothing to you. He did it out of sheer love, keeping the promise he made to your ancestors. God stepped in and mightily bought you back out of that world of slavery, freed you from the iron grip of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know this: God, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations. But he also pays back those who hate him, pays them the wages of death; he isn’t slow to pay them off—those who hate him, he pays right on time.

In turn, is my love LOYAL to others?  Are we filled with grace?  When I wake do I choose to love in LOYAL way?  Our neighbors need a LOYAL love.  Our world is full of—-

Facebook comments, Instagram photos and stories, Tweets, Emails, Texts, and most of these are to strangers or acquaintances.

I explained to our 12 year old son last spring that many people will text you.  Some are spam, some are people we know, and some are people who want to know us.  However, if someone is texting you in an unkind or uncomfortable way it is okay and best NOT to respond.  We do not have to be LOYAL to those that we do not fully know.

If they are a true friend then they will show you LOYAL love.  If not, it’s okay to block them or unfriend them.  As an adult I have to this.  I have to filter out what I read and whom I choose to spend time getting to know.  I know this may sound harsh, but it is necessary to weed out the weeds in our lives and guide our kids to do the same.

Dear God,  Thank you for being LOYAL.  Forgive me when I do not make the effort to be LOYAL in my own love for You and others.  Guide us and the children of this next generation to be seeking those who are LOYAL in love.  AMEN.

For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever.Psalm 100:5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. Earn a reputation for living well in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people.

  1. You’re so tight. Teaching kids that sometimes it’s ok to not be loyal is so important. Oh and I love Lauren Daigle. Visiting from the 42 spot this week.
