As I look back over my journals and the notes in my bible, I note that I have always held on to a part of God and never forget it. Over and over in my journey of following the Lord, countless times, I have written the words “He is faithful.”
That just resonates so well in my soul. No matter what you’re going through, no matter how much or how little you know about Him, no matter - He is faithful.
He is faithful to meet every need.
He is faithful to answer every prayer, every concern.
He is faithful to prove to you that He is enough.
He is faithful to speak life into the ugliest parts of your heart.
He is faithful to hold you when you are broken.
He is faithful when everyone else has left.
He is faithful.
Please, whatever you do, remember that. It’s such a comfort knowing that the King of all kings, the ruler of all creation is faithful to even the smallest parts of you.
He is faithful even when I am not. He never leaves or pushes me away - anytime I find myself looking for Him, He is right there. When life is seeming to fall apart around you and you’re left in the middle of a mess, He is faithful and wants to pick you back up. Even when you don’t know the words to say or the things to do, He is faithful and understands what you need.
Something about that has always comforted me. When I am stressed and overwhelmed and out-of-my-mind-CRAZY, I know that He is faithful to hear me, understand me, love me, provide every single one of my needs. He is faithful.
