He’s Always Been Faithful

I found this song shortly before I went on Journey, and I absolutely LOVE it!!!  I’ve underlined my most favorite part!!
He’s Always Been Faithful” – by Sara Groves
Morning by morning I wake up to find
the power and comfort of God’s hand in mine.
Season by season I watch him amazed, in
awe of the mystery of his perfect ways
All I have need of his hand will provide.
He’s always been faithful to me
I can’t remember a trial or a pain he did
not recycle to bring me gain. I can’t
remember one single regret in serving
God only and trusting his hand
This is my anthem, this is my song, the
theme of the stories I’ve heard for so long.
God has been faithful, he will be again.
His loving compassion, it knows no end.

Under Pressure…

Toothpaste……whoever would have thought I would do a blog post on toothpaste?!  But, I’m doing it 🙂

Now I don’t know about you, but when I squeeze a tube of toothpaste, I expect toothpaste to come out…and it has never failed me…yet.  But have you ever thought of how you could actually use this for an analogy of your life?

Think about it…when you look at a tube of toothpaste, it usually looks pretty good…but it isn’t until you squeeze the tube (apply pressure) that you see what’s really inside.

It’s the same way with us…we may look (and act) good on the outside, but what comes out when pressure’s applied…when God sends a trial your way or when others don’t treat you right?  Is your response Christ-like and loving, or is it something completely different than what ‘the package’ shows?
