Remembering God’s Faithfulness


faithfulness-2

At Tuesday Evening’s Bible Study a special sister-in-Christ gave her testimony. It was a powerful moment as she shared her life and God’s faithfulness through her difficult times.

Hearing her story resurrected memories of how God has been so faithful through my own life. There has been laughter and sorrows, gifts and emptiness, friends and the end of friendships. But through it all there was one constant – my precious Lord. All things lost didn’t matter, because I gained so much more. I gained peace. I felt His love. He took me from the valleys to the mountaintops. My life is full because of Him.

Something prompted me to write down my own testimony. Since becoming a Christian I had never shared it. I’m not sure I’m called to do that now. I think I just needed to write it down to see God’s incredible faithfulness throughout my life. It gave me such joy to remember how good God has been to me. I saw how He changed me; how He took my poor choices and used them for His glory. As I grew in my faith I saw how He prevented me from making other wrong choices and then lavished me with His better gifts. I see how the trials I have experienced shaped me and grew my faith.

Consider making a timeline of your own life, writing down your celebrations and tragedies, then go back and note where God strengthened you and pulled you through, and when He celebrated with you. Remember, with thankfulness His incredible gifts. It’s such a powerful exercise.

Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

 

May you feel His indescribable love today.

  1. Julie,
    As a fellow Christian, it really moves me when people share how they came to know that they have Christ in their lives! I pray that as you share your story, you are able to he others as well!

  2. What a lovely post, Julie. Thank you for sharing your heart and encouraging us to look at what God has done in our lives. It is so easy to focus on the negative circumstances and the unfulfilled plans, and to think that God has forgotten us on some levels. The verses are favorites of mine, which I remember often. God is truly merciful and faithful, and we can’t thank Him enough. Thank you for blessing my day 🙂
