We have had RAIN! And DAYS of cloudy, gloomy weather, even when it wasn’t raining.
Outside our front door we have a solar-powered lantern. It hasn’t had much time to recharge lately. Yet on a day when we had downpours of drenching rain, over and over, I looked out that evening (as it was raining still) and saw this:
My first thought was, “How Faithful!” This lantern has a job to do, and against all odds, it is doing it well. Then I wondered, “Am I being faithful?”
My friend with a difficult medical diagnosis is depending on others showing faithfulness to care for her. Another young friend with a newborn in the NICU is missing the faithfulness of friends who have NOT called her. Our Bible study group has been meeting for 20 years, and the leader epitomizes faithfulness.
Am I doing the job(s) I have to do, and doing it (them) well? Am I being spiritually faithful, and caring for family, and checking in with friends, and keeping house as I should? And am I lighting the way with joy and smiles?
Our Father has great faithfulness: morning by morning new mercies I see. He can help me to be more faithful.
Thank you, little light of mine, for shining your steadfast light.
