Unchanging Faithfulness

... to praise the Holy One, who was and is and is to come ...

Last night we sang "Unchanging" [by Chris Tomlin, but played by Greg last night] and I started writing on a scrap piece of paper as I thought about God's faithfulness ...

He has been faithful. And he will be in days to come. I look at my son who is sleeping near me and think of my daughter who is playing outside with her friends. I know God's faithfulness. He created our family in a way I hadn't expected. And yet it is perfect.

We aren't perfect individuals, but God is and he joined us together perfectly. Together we are testament of the peace that passes all understanding and the way God knows the desires of our hearts. And for all these things I'm thankful.

The truly amazing thing is He's not done. He will still do beautiful things with us and for us. Because we are His and He is ours.

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." --Zephaniah 3:17

He delights in us. He quiets us ... and our fears, anxieties and worries. He rejoices over us. And not because we're perfect or even worthy. He doesn't stop doing these things. He continually delights, quiets and rejoices with us, in us and over us.

Then we sang another song that allowed us to praise God for another promise ...

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning ... Great is Your faithfulness ...
