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,
