Faithful to the End
I was given a lovely bouquet of flowers for my birthday this summer.
The blooms lasted a long time
one lonely flower outlasted them all.
I was reminded of the verse in Hebrews 3:14
"For we have become partakers of Christ
if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end."
What a beautifully comforting word.
Jesus has promised to be faithful to the end of the age
and His promises are true, but what about us?
Are we faithful as long as things go our way...and then waver when it no longer feels 'good' ?
Are we like that last flower, blooming even when we are the only one left standing?
Do we refuse to ask 'Why?' because we know the Who?
Who - the One who is our answer,
our anchor, our strength!
"Until my last breath, or until I hear the trumpet call,
I will be faithful to the end."
