Unfaithful

Poetry

What part of You should I write of today?

The way You raise Your hand to stop me when I’m going the wrong way?

Or the blessings You shower down to remind me You love me and are here to stay.

How about the confidence You bestow when everything else is on shaky ground

Or the Hope you instill when no tangible reason to hope can be found

Yes those are all great. But I think there is  still another favorite I should proclaim.

When I told You I may never be faithful, You gently grabbed my hand and said “I know” and kept loving me anyway. 

2 Timothy 2:13

If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.

Steadfast Love

Poetry

You are the only One who will never leave

The only One who loves consistently

The only One who keeps promises

The only One I’ll ever need

 

Everything else is subject to change.

 

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

By Design

Poetry

I can find little purposes and create a decent life for myself here.  I can fill up my time, enjoy meaningful experiences, develop fun-filled social circles and excel in many things.  I can dive into a career and pour myself into volunteer opportunities and work toward bettering myself and my community.  Only… those things don’t fully satisfy my purpose here unless I’m doing them with You. 

I desire to learn Your promises

To believe the things I cannot see

Embrace a life that looks different

Confidently as I walk it with Thee

Securely trusting and following

This path You’ve designed for me.
