Abide In Love

1 John 4:16
We have come to know and have believed
the love which God has for us. God is love,
and the one who abides in love abides in
God, and God abides in him.

Malachi 3:6
For I, the Lord, do not change

Hebrews 13:5
 “I will never desert you, nor will I ever
forsake you,”

God's love is never changing and always
there for us. What wonderful peace we
have in Him each step we take.

Praise His Name.
