Great Is Thy Faithfulness

“Faithfulness” is not the feel-good churchy term I thought it was.

Faithfulness is found when hope persists that this may be the last “no”  before the “yes.”

Faithfulness is found when the courage to endeavor toward the “not yet” defeats the fear of the “right now.”

Faithfulness is not merely waiting for redemption. Faithfulness is choosing to be a part of it.

Faithfulness is sacrifice. Faithfulness is discipline. Faithfulness is persistence.

Faithfulness is painful. Faithfulness is, perhaps, the greatest expression of love — for faithfulness requires the death of something.

Faithfulness is a pilgrimage endured only by the certainty that, though not yet, “all manner of thing shall be well.”

“Great is Thy faithfulness, LORD, unto me …”
