Being faithful does not just apply to our marriages. It applies to our lives. The dictionary defines faithful as: loyal, constant, and steadfast. Isn't that just about every mom's daily life? We are loyal to our commitments, whether they are with the PTA or our family and friends. We are constant in our chores and kids discipline and everything else under our sun. We are definitely steadfast, how else would the laundry get done?
Take a minute and apply faithful to your everyday life. You are faithful. Faithful in love, faithful in life, and faithful in faith. We don't give up on the first day or the next or the next. Sometimes being faithful to our world is just getting out of bed in the morning. Faithful is a state of mind. I believe, as women, especially women of God, it is also almost automatic in our minds and choices.
There are so many references to being faithful in the bible. God being faithful to his people and people being faithful to God. One of my favorites is Psalm 145:13
".....The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made."
Wow, he made us, so he Loves us. Just like we love our children. That is amazing. We think God is so far from us, but he is with us and loves us. He is faithful. He is faithful in our daily lives just like we are faithful in our lives. About everything and anything in our lives. This is an a amazing comfort to me. When I can't handle it, He can. Some days I turn to Him in a constant way. That is all God requires of us, come to Him, rely on Him. He desperately loves us and wants us to have a personal relationship with Him. That always knocks me on my butt, how much God wants us to be with Him. Amazing.
What are you faithful about? I know as a woman, you do a million things in your life everyday. You are faithful. And God is faithful to you, seek his face, He never disappoints.
God bless you and yours on your faithful day.
