… being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23)
On the 6th Day of Christmas,
my True Love gave to me: Faithfulness.
Faithfulness is remaining steadfast in Allegiance and Affection.
Loyal. Constant. Devoted.
If you’ve ever been betrayed by a spouse or a friend, God’s gift of Faithfulness can be hard to receive. I know because I’ve been there myself. We tend to become self-protective. Distrustful of others and of ourselves. Sometimes, even of God.
Sometimes we try to fix the other person. Mental health professionals call that “codependency.” But I don’t believe that’s how He wants us to respond either.
So maybe we’d do well to ask Him what that/those betrayal(s) mean(s) for our relationship with Him. And how He wants us to handle the situation(s).
… as He is, so are we in this world. (1 John 4:17b)
Because of The Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is Your Faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)
Jesus is our True Love, and He’s the Reason we keep celebrating!
