I must pause. My heart is overflowing because in the midst of struggle, I have to stop and I’m drawn to my knees because of this one thing: GOD IS FAITHFUL!!!
Things change. People lie. People leave. Unfaithfulness is all around me. I am surrounded in brokenness. I walk along a very broken path that is rained upon by tears and blood. BUT HE IS FAITHFUL. UNCHANGING.
“When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: ‘Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also.’ This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe, for our God is a devouring fire.'” Hebrews 12:26-29
Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say:
Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
Definition: Faithful: Loyal, constant, and steadfast.
This doesn’t even begin to describe the God we serve.
He never leaves us. Think about this. No matter what has happened, or what will happen, he’s not going anywhere. He is faithful. It’s so comforting thinking through the events of my life, just in the past 3 years, let alone my whole life, seeing that he has been there.
I’ve faced some dark days. I’m not about to sit here and tell you everything’s great. It’s not. In fact I’ve walked a road the past few months I never EVER wanted to walk. But I’ve decided that following him is so much better than walking away from him or disregarding what he tells me to do an where he leads me.
I have to apologize too, to my friends. I’ve been consumed. And many of you, most of you in fact, I have not let you in about this. I’ve just been working through it all and been…. self consumed. Please, forgive me.
Not only is God faithful and with us, but we all have each other. Surrounded by grace to spread the good news to this broken earth.
He is good. Never once. Never once have we ever walked alone.
