"The degree of our faithfulness is the direct result of our regard for God's faithfulness."-Beth Moore.
Over the past few weeks I have "cyber-watched" several women, one I know and one I don't, go through very trying circumstances in regard to their little girls. Although they are not out of the woods completely, they both seem to be able to breathe at least a sigh of relief knowing God's faithfulness will seemingly result in a positive outcome. I have thought about these women and their precious girls a lot, and have prayed-- a lot. I have been amazed at their vulnerability to share with those of us who are out here watching. I wonder if they know they are a true testament to not only God's faithfulness, but their own.
If you read the comments on each of their blogs it's amazing to see how God has used so many people to offer His words of encouragement and thoughts of love. He hasn't been faithful in just the healing of these two little girls, but holding each of these women up helping them to just focus on Him and his ability to carry them through the process of growing in Him.
I don't know that I have ever not believed God. (Beth comments on the faithfulness of God is his believability.) As I have gotten older, and hopefully become a little more wise, I understand more the depths of his faithfulness. (I do have a long way to go!) Even though at times I wonder what in the world he is doing, I would rather remain focused on Him knowing that his word and promises will not fail. I can't imagine how people who live without this trust in Him make it through even one traumatic event in their lives.
