God is Never, Ever, Ever on Vacation

God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 
Hebrews 13:5
In Greek(1) this sentence is best translated "I will never, ever, ever forsake you."

That means God's Spirit is with us no matter what........through thick and thin........in good times and bad.......always.......no exceptions......whether we feel His presence or not.
The most important aspect of this promise is our response. Do we ignore God or take His hand throughout the day? We can't leave His presence, but we can take him for granted.
Please join me today in thinking of ways to remember God's faithfulness. One way to do this is to set an alarm to go off every hour as a reminder to pause and say "I love You" to the God who will never, ever, ever leave you.
