Who is Faithful?

Forgiveness and faithfulness are two words that have gotten lost in the world of unfaithful friends and lovers. There are those of us who are willing to give our love and devotion and then find that we have put our trust in the wrong place.

Jeremiah 17:5 This is what the Lord says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord.

Maybe you don’t trust God because you don’t KNOW that you can lean on the Lord for help, or know that the only way we can truly forgive is to learn from the One Who forgave us!

Un-forgiveness and hatredIMG_0200 in your heart and mind, is like drinking poison and expecting the person you hate to get sick, or die. Chances are they don’t know how you feel, and if they do, they simply do not care! So why burden yourself with hating or not forgiving them, it means they are actually controlling your life!

There is only One who completely, continually, forgives, and that is God Almighty.

My parents were married 70 years and remained sweethearts until the day he went to heaven! In today’s world when a movie star says they have been married 5 years, everyone applauds and cheers for such a long-lived marriage. I have watched more than one star hiding from the paparazzi in their multi-thousand dollar dress at their million-dollar wedding, only to see them getting a divorce a few months (weeks even) later.

It seems like things such as loyalty to vows and people, whether romantic connections or just friends, no longer count. GOD is faithful, you can’t get so old that he is looking for someone YOUNGER to convert, or too ugly or fat or better yet He doesn’t get bored with you! He joined Himself to us.

In the wedding ceremony, the minister says, “What do you give as a token of your love and fidelity”, the normal answer is “A ring”, which symbolizes the never-ending circle of love. God did not just give a ring He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ as the covenant offering, His promise of love and fidelity toward His Bride. I used to say that when you get married you have to “quit dating other people” and looks to me like too many Christians give their heart to the Lord and then flirt with the devil on a daily basis, they put their feet under Satan’s table and dine with him and then expect God to “understand”. We shouldn’t do it in the flesh and we can’t do it in the Spirit.

Lamentations 3:22 God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over). He’s all I’ve got left.These beautiful words from the Bible remind me of one of my favorite hymns: Great Is Thy Faithfulness Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father; There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not; As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be. Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Thy hand hath provided; great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

We are taking this journey together, so come on and get on board and let’s see where the road takes us as we are blessed! Forgive, and remain faithful to the Lord and to each other because He is faithful to you!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
