Steadfast love...

definition of steadfast-

a: firmly fixed in place: immovable

b :  not subject to change

  1. Synonyms-constantdedicateddevoteddevout, goodloyalfaithfulsteadytruetrue-blue(from Merriam-Webster's online dictionary)
    I'm currently re-reading the book of Psalms in my English Standard Version journaling Bible. Today during my devotions I was struck not only by the frequency with which David writes of God's love for him, but I noticed that in the E.S.V. when he mentions God's love it is always accompanied by the word steadfast. 
    Psalm 26:3, "Your steadfast love is before my yes, and I walk in your faithfulness."
    If something is "before my eyes" then that means I am focused on it. In other words, I should be focused on God's immovable, unchangeable love for me. If I am focused and convinced that God's love for me is constant, dedicated, loyal, faithful, true-blue, then I will be a lot less prone to fear, worry, anxiety, putting too many expectations on my other relationships, seeking love in wrong ways, and other attitudes and behaviors that a lack of feeling loved can trigger.   (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, April 30th, at Woman to Woman Ministries where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)
