As I have prayed and reflected about writing this post all week, the only thing that has come to me, continually, is the old hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness”. And so, we are going to embrace that today.
If you have five minutes today, I would encourage you to listen to Great is Thy Faithfulness
Great is Thy Faithfulness
Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
as thou hast been thou forever will be.
Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
all I have needed thy hand hath provided;
great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy and love. Refrain
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! Refrain.

Sit back and close your eyes. Let the music surround you. After you listen to the song, I encourage you to reflect and pray about the following questions.
- How have you experienced God’s faithfulness in your life?
- How have you experienced a pardon for sin and peace that endureth?
- How does God’s faithfulness give you strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow?
- How are you able to share God’s faithfulness in your life with those around you?
