Bread for the Journey

God's Faithfulness

Some time ago I read a story of a godly grandmother who over the years wrote in the margins
of her bible things that she was learning. After she passed away her family spent time in
her bible and noticed over and over she had written the letters TP. They were perplexed as to
what these letters could mean, until one day they came to the letters written in full beside
one of the faithful promises of God. It read "tried and proved". It was obvious that she had
experienced God to be faithful many times in her life.
Lamentations 3:22-23
"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.

Are you recognizing God's faithfulness in your life today?
When we begin to grasp God's great faithfulness
to us, our response will be faithfulness
back to him.
Blessing -Kathy

  4. That brought tears to my eyes.
    How many times do I not pay attention to God's faithfulness to me, to my family, to my friends.

    I also think it's so cool that Grandma wrote TP in her Bible. Even after passing, Grandma has inspired me to write about God's faithfulness in my journal.

    Thank you for the great post.

    Love and blessings
