Great Faithfulness

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

-Lamentations 3:22-23

You have been faithful.

When I’ve had no words, You’ve filled my mouth with streams of sentences. When I have stumbled in the dark and blanched at the shadows, You’ve taken Your hand in mine and walked with me through the night. In this maze of a world, You have straightened my paths and led me to the light. When I’ve voiced my discomfort, You have listened to my screams, then held me when they transformed into sobs.

You’ve seen me in my darkest moments, the thoughts that haunted and threatened to devour my dreams. You have brightened the hopes I’ve harbored and delighted in my shining eyes.

You’ve watched me wrestle with leaving my comfort zone to venture into the wild unknown of each day, where I may not know where I am going, but I do know Who is guiding me. And like You do for the sparrows singing outside my window, You provide for me exactly what I need, exactly when I need it.

You are kind and caring. You call me Your one and only. You have led me to Your love, into this beautifully terrifying journey that thrills and enchants me.

You are patient when I stray. Gentle when I am stubborn and sees all that I search for in vain. Your song is in my heart, Your laugh embedded in each line I write. Your scent is wound in roses, Your eyes entwined in twilight. When I doubt my worth, You hold Your mirror in front of me and beckon me to see the girl You see each morning. You are fair and just, and I am not immune to Your corrections. But You refine me; You spin me fine as gold.

I am wrapped in the shelter of Your arms, my strong tower and refuge. In the strength of You wings, I have learned to fly.
