He is faithful




loyal, constant, and steadfast

God is faithful. 

He’s faithful in your affliction. 

He’s faithful in your weariness. 

He’s faithful in your mundane. 

He’s faithful in your joy. 

He’s faithful in your loneliness. 

He’s faithful in your confusion. 

He’s faithful in your waiting. 

He’s faithful in your anxiety. 

He’s faithful in the ordinary. 

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 

-Hebrews 10:23

God is faithful. He never fails. #preachingtomyself

 “A man who has a layover at an airport does not go into the bathroom, frown at its decor, and start redecorating! Why? Because he doesn’t live there. He has a home in another place. While he is away he will get by with only what he absolutely needs, to have more money with which to furnish his permanent home.”

—Michael P. Green

I don’t know about you, but my soul longs for Heaven. Where there won’t be anymore pain or suffering. To combat this sometimes I try to make this side of Heaven more comfortable. I’m decorating airport bathrooms. 🥴 This world is not my home. One day I will receive my inheritance. “...An inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” - 1 Peter 1:4-5

Jesus is Better

Jesus is better.

He’s better than being rich.

He’s better than your relationships. 

He’s better than your stuff. 

He’s better than living in comfort. 

He’s better than your political affiliation. 

He’s better than food. 

He’s better than your job.

There’s nothing in all of creation that’s better than Him. Chasing after worldly things that could be gone at any moment only leaves us thirsty for more. Only Jesus satisfies the hole in our soul. #preachingtomyself
