I have spent a lot of time lately contemplating the idea of Faithfulness. What does it look like to be Faithful in all things? Faithful to God, to who He has created me to to be, to what He is calling me to, to myself, to friends, to family, to work, to all that I do.

How can one person remain faithful in all of these areas?

That is the question that I am Faithfully wrestling with.

This idea of Faithfulness came up during my Prayer Retreat and then became our focus at RAW (Real Authentic Worship) and as is often the case when God is trying to work something out in me it keeps creeping up into various areas of my life. Into realtionships, situations, books and so much more.

Thinking about it I realize that the people I look up to most in life are those who have displayed Faithfulness. Nothing else ties these individuals together other than their Faithfulness. What do you picture when you think of Faithfulness?

The more I think about Faithfulness the more deep it becomes so I want to know what you think of.

So friends what are your thoughts on Faithfulness?

Does it come easy? Do you struggle? How do you define Faithfulness?

If we die with Him,
we shall also live with Him.
If we endure,
we will also reign with Him.
If we disown Him,
He will also disown us.
If we are faithless,
He remains faithful,
for He cannot deny Himself.

2 Timothy 2:11-13.

Not my thoughts, but His, and His are always more faithful than mine.

He is God...i am not
He is faithful...i am not
He is merciful...for that i am grateful

Recent discussions about faithfulness have led me to the following:

Working faithfully does not mean that my work will be perfect.

Just because my work is not perfect, does not mean it is not good.

To be faithful is to do the very best you can. If you have done that, you've been faithful to the task at hand, even if things don't turn out perfectly.
