Advent Day Twenty-Two Devotion - "Faithfulness" by Martha Lytle

Let love and faithfulness never leave you.  Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  

Proverbs 3:3

The faithfulness of our Lord amazes me in my walk with him as I look at my life.  There have been many times I walked into experiences which challenged my faith - some difficult, but as I went through those times, they became invitations to respond  to the love and faithfulness of our Lord.  I realize the whole of my life is full of His surprises wrapped up with an “I told you so”.  Christ has taught me that faith is action and when I doubt, I look back and remember those who taught me of God’s faithfulness in my life - a certainty of His everlasting love and care which I want to share with others.  What then did I expect to see?  The gift of faithfulness which draws me to those who are followers of Christ who encourage one another, listen, share the gospel message and walk in faithfulness.

Father God, Maker of the universe, help me to be faithful in all that you ask me to do and be. Amen
