ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

 Faithfulness

 
Faithfulness is underrated...
It isn't glamorous or cool...
Not trendy or attention grabbing...
It, actually, avoids this rule.
 
It's not chased by paparazzi...
Not really cheered or recognized...
Not seen as extra ordinary...
Except when through our Father's eyes.
 
Our culture seems to love the famous...
 The Superstars draw the applause.
But God is searching for a servant...
Someone committed to His Cause.
 
Nobody needs to be real perfect
And none of us have to perform.
 Our God is really not expecting
 For us to take the world by storm.
 
But He does expect us to be faithful...
For how else will His Kingdom come?
And shouldn't we be thrilled to live for
 Such an awesome audience of One?
 
 God's children are not on the clock...
 We're not on any short term lease.
 And there are days we're sure to stumble...
But our faithfulness should never cease.
 
 A lifetime pattern is what
Our loving Father will consider...
 "Well done my good and faithful servant"
Will not be heard by any quitter!
 
But, for all the times we do fall short,
There is forgiveness and there's Grace.
So let us be that faithful servant
Until we meet Him face to face.

~~Author's Note~~
In the words of my friend, Sandy,
faithfulness can be many things,
in many ways, but it is usually
personal, quiet, and there at all times.

~~Dedicated to Sandy~~
 
1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast,
 immovable, always abounding in the work
 of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in
 vain in the Lord.
 
Psalm 31:23
O love the LORD, all you His godly ones!
 The LORD preserves the faithful And fully
recompenses the proud doer.
 
Matthew 25:21
"His master said to him, 'Well done, good
 and faithful servant. You were faithful with a
 few things, I will put you in charge of many things;
 enter into the joy of your master.'
 
Luke 16:10-12
One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful

 in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little
 is also dishonest in much. If then you have not
been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will
entrust to you the true riches? And if you have not
been faithful in that which is another's, who will give
 you that which is your own.
