Even when Israel was wandering in the wilderness under God’s discipline, the Lord did not forsake her. “The LORD says, ‘The people of Israel who survived death at the hands of the enemy will find favor in the wilderness as they journey to find rest for themselves.’ In a far-off land the LORD will manifest himself to them. He will say to them, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love. That is why I have continued to be faithful to you.’” (Jeremiah 31:2, 3) God loves you and he won’t give up on you. Nor will he give up on your loved one. Because He is faithful even when we aren’t.
