Fidelity

The nature of God is simple in that He is all love. We, as creatures, are not simple by nature. Our hearts are seldom undivided in faithfulness to God. We must strive to persevere in renewing our commitment to Christ daily and in striving to remain faithful to Him, without losing hope in His merciful love and grace.

For the Lord is good; His steadfast love endures for ever, and His faithfulness to all generations.” (Psalm 100.5)

Faithful Heart

Our God’s truly the Faithful One
He is the Truth, the Life, the Way.
We are entrusted to His Son,
Though we, His sheep, so often stray.

To be faithful demands a choice:
To go our way or follow Him.
His faithful lambs will heed His voice,
Trusting He knows what’s best for them.

A faithful heart seeks to embrace
All, with the love the Lord has shown;
Striving to build a lasting peace –
The kingdom come is true shalom.

A faithful heart strives to discern
The Lord’s will in the everyday;
Collaborating in its turn –
His grace is multiplied this way.

In faithful hearts, Christ will emerge;
In them, His truth and love converge.

For You are great and do wondrous things; You alone are God. Teach me Your way, O Lord, that I may walk in Your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name. I give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify Your name for ever.” (Psalm 86.10-12)

Lord, grant me the grace to renew my commitment to be faithful to You each day, that I may serve You out of love, with my eyes set on You alone. Amen.
