I took this photo at the of the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado. As I took this photo of a rock formation surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, a verse in the Book of Isaiah came to mind that says: "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken". The Hebrew word translated as 'love' here is 'hesed' which is a hard word to define.
Theologian John Oswalt says hesed is "… a completely undeserved kindness and generosity …". Hesed is not just a feeling, it's an action. It "intervenes on behalf of loved ones and comes to their rescue", according to Lois Tverberg. Hesed is not romantic love. It’s faithful. It’s reliable. It’s a wife praying for years for her husband to know God. It’s a dad once again bailing out his drug-addicted son. It is parents who lovingly care daily for their autistic child. Hesed is faithful. Hesed is loyal. Hesed is a love based on action. Hesed is the unfailing love God has for YOU.
Today, no matter what you face, you can rely on God’s ‘hesed’. If you want me to pray you experience this unshakable love today, write HESED in the COMMENTS.

God understands that thankfulness is not always (or usually) a gut-reaction for us. Even Jesus struggled to thankfully accept God’s Plan of salvation while He prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, preparing to go through the agony of the cross. “‘Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.’ And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him,” Luke 22:42-43 records.
This passage tells us two things:
First, there is value in going through the motions even if the feelings aren’t there. Choosing to thank God even if you don’t feel like it and are actually more stressed than thankful can be an important first step in having your heart opened to true gratitude.
Secondly, the passage says angels ministered to Christ and helped strengthen Him for what he was about to undergo. We have someone even better than God’s entire host of angels to aid us--Jesus Himself.

Though life may bring us trials, we are not alone. And though offering up thanksgiving in the midst of those trials may be a sacrifice, it is a rewarding one.

This world and the life we live in it is often a thankfulness-stealer. But in Christ, we know that we can “Rejoice always” (1 Thessalonians 5:16) because the trials and hard times are not a test, but another reason to trust God who is working all for our good and has already given us “all things that pertain to life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3). I love you all, Have a great day !! ❤️✌🏻️ #jesus #grace #love #peace #salvation #redeemed #jesuschrist #god #amazinggrace #saved #prayer #heisrisen #lethimbeknown #prayer #christfollower #savedbygrace #joy #hope #atheist #atheism #holy spirit #encouragement #porch #porchlive

It's time to start living the life you've imagined #liveyourquote

What's keeping you from stepping into your destiny? Doubt? Fear? A rough childhood? Insecurity? Trust me when I say, you will never be able to step into the wonderful purpose Christ has for you if you can't let go of your past once and for all. I know this is easier said than done, but I want to help you on this journey. Be encouraged that it's never too late to leave fear at the door and make bravery your home. #BishopJakes #Encouragement #MondayMotivation #Hope #Destiny

For you are God, my Father, the reason I exist. You are the reason I breathe air into my lungs. Without you, I am and have nothing. You alone are God and I seek you with all my heart. Thank you for all you have done. In Jesus' name, amen! #morningprayer

“In life, I love people. People are friends. Everybody, in my opinion, is brothers and sisters because everybody is a child of God. I love opening the communication between all people, black, white, red, brown, yellow, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, whatever. There are different trails that people take to get to self-realization or God-realization. I also love music. Sound vibration can be healing. In 1997, at the Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival, we were camping in the mountains above Lake Tahoe and you could see Lake Tahoe in the distance. It was cool. Somebody gave me a side-blown bamboo flute and I started messing around with it. And two weeks later I was on the front page of a newspaper in Aspen, Colorado. I was playing in downtown Aspen and a little crowd got together and somebody asked to take a picture. And come to find out they were taking a picture for the Aspen Times. Next day somebody came running up to me, “Steve, Steve, did you see the paper?” They showed me the paper and it was a big picture of me on the front page. It was cool.” - Steve Roots (Cincinnati, OH)
