As Faithful as the Rising of the Sun…


Lamentations 3:22-24 (New International Version)

22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,

       for his compassions never fail.

23 They are new every morning;

       great is your faithfulness.

24 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;

       therefore I will wait for him.”

It happened gradually.

As we drove from Grayson to Columbus.

The darkness gave way to sunlight.

The clouds gave way to the powerful rays.

And once again I knew.

God never fails.

Darkness never ends in darkness.

It is always followed by light.

The darkest of nights need not be seen as a sign of hopelessness.

For morning comes..just like God’s faithfulness.

So I trust Him and I wait.

Knowing He has the power to transform all aspects of darkness that surround me.2009-06-250080 holiday world trip resized

And as I look at these photographs tonight I am reminded of today’s headlines.

The lives of two American legends have ended.

Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson have passed away.

This life is fragile even for the wealthiest, most famous, most successful of people. 

The only thing that is 100% certain is God’s faithfulness.

He is as faithful as the daily rising of the sun.

Thank you, Lord, for allowing creation to display Your most-needed quality…Your Faithfulness.

Praying for the hurting families and friends this evening.

Praying they are somehow drawn near to Him who is faithful,

  1. Sweet Tammy,

    I am thinking of you this evening. Praying you are covered in His love and grace. Praying you are seeing a glimmer of light in your dark days. And I’m thanking the dear Lord once again that He brought our lives together last summer at such an important time.

    I love you so, so much dear friend.

  2. Yes, life is fragile – and death comes to all of us…no matter who we are. The difference is eternity – the life we live forever after this one….that is “the real deal!” I am so thankful this morning for the assurance of my salvation, of Heaven and those I love waiting there for me (and cheering me along until I get there), and knowing that when death does come – I will be ushered into eternity with Christ.

    I am always mindful of these things when public figures die…the media is SO focused on their lives/accomplishments/etc here – when all of that has nothing to do with their eternity.

    Oh goodness, I got carried away!! I just love your posts…they so speak to my heart and encourage me (and even get me to preachin’) 🙂 Love ya,


  3. I am with you, dear friend!!!!!

    I see the tributes on TV to all the accomplishments of their lives and I wonder if they were doing anything to prepare for the “real life.” I hope so. I hope deep down they had searched and found Him……

    Thankful that we do not have to “grieve like those who have no hope.”

    Love you!
