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 wilt 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!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.

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!

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth.
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide.
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

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!

Thomas Chisholm

Speaking of God’s faithfulness…

It is so easy to get wrapped up in our lives, in our troubles, in our finances, in our relationships, in our jobs, in our lack of these things, in ourselves! I admit, I am prone to recall the moments when I have felt most alone and unimportant in the world. But this is folly. I am learning once again–or still, perhaps–that it is in those moments when I feel the most alone that God is carrying me and working all things together for my good, for His glory.

It helps to take our focus off of ourselves now and again. If I cannot find one thing in my own life to praise God’s faithfulness, then I am learning to ask others what God is doing in their lives. I find the most remarkable thing–that rejoicing in what God is doing in the lives of those I love allows me to see more clearly His faithfulness, even when I don’t understand Him. So this is a call out to all of us: speak of God’s faithfulness.

Speak of God’s faithfulness! Call to remembrance all He has done. Let not your heart be burdened with the weight of worry, but take on the yoke of Christ–it is easy, and His burden is light.

If you haven’t shared with me in awhile what God is doing in your life, I would love to hear from you.

Pax Christi.

Semmie.
