As Surely As The Sun Will Rise

Good morning, friends!  I always enjoy starting off the week by writing a blog post.  It's a fun way to share my thoughts and ideas on life, especially the lessons that I've learned while walking on this spiritual journey with God.

One lesson God has been showing me lately is about His faithfulness.  Have you ever wondered about God's faithfulness?  I know I do.  There are times when I am certain, but there are more probably more times that I doubt.  But thank goodness that God does not waver in His faithfulness in the way that I waver in my believing.  God is faithfull all of the time.  Even when we don't think He is going to be, or when we don't think that we deserve it, He still is faithful.

Last month at work was incredibly challenging for me.  My workload increased significantly as our group took on a new project, and I honestly didn't think I was going to be able to meet all of the deadlines for my monthly reporting.  But God was quick to remind me - just as you have met all of your deadlines in the past, you will still be able to meet all of your deadlines.  God was faithful before, and He will be faithful again.  Amen!

After four weeks of long hours and lots of overtime (and lots of prayer), I met all of my deadlines, and was even able to get things finished before their deadline!  To me, it was a miracle, and a sure sign that God is faithful to His word.   

Hillsong sings a song called You'll Come, which is about this very subject of God's faithfulness.  I blasted this song on my CD player as I was driving home from work last week, and I was overcome with emotion everytime I sang these words:  As surely as the sun will rise, you'll come to us.  As certain as the dawn appears, you'll come.  (Inspired by Hosea 6:3).

It's comforting to know that if I ever find myself again wondering about how faithful God really is, then all I have to do is look at the sun and know that as surely as the sun will rise, then surely our God is faithful.
