Father, thank You for this brand new start.
Thank You for quiet mornings with You. The thought of You, of being with You, excites me. How can I not be excited when You’re always making beautiful promises and fulfilling them? And even when things take time, even when I think You failed me, I only need to look at You and I see You, my ever faithful Lover, still with me. You show me Your faithfulness with Your presence in both good and bad times.
I have been a terrible lover, thinking that Your goodness is proven in Your doing MY will. How deeply the seeds of the world have been planted in my heart.
Is faithfulness proven in gifts and services? No. Is not faithfulness proven in presence, in being there, never leaving, in compassion? Yes.
Truly, You have been a faithful God.
I will rest in Your faithfulness that I may live faithful to You as well.
