how to stay faithful when you want to quit
'Great is Thy faithfulness' rings out in churches across the world as we acknowledge and celebrate one of the most fundamental, and reassuring of God's character traits.
He is faithful to His people.
His love language is faith.
Being faithful is esteemed as a true virtue in human behavior, from every walk of life. Faithfulness matters. Why?
Without faithfulness, there is no security. No stability. And very little ground to lay trust upon.
Faithfulness is the hot house for growing trust - and where there is trust, there is growth.
Faithfulness is your demonstration of your love.
We know that love is a choice and an action. When we are faithful, through the good times and the hard times, we proclaim that we are putting into action the power of our prior commitment.
Faithfulness is about digging in when we don't see the fruit yet.
Faithfulness is about refusing to give up on the vision in your heart.
Faithfulness is about sowing seed today and staying focused - expecting a harvest to bloom in time.
Faithfulness is full of power because sometimes you have to keep going, keep sowing, keep loving and keep believing - even when it feels futile. 1 Corinthians 15:58 is a rally call to keep on keeping on.
Love your husband or wife with all your heart, mind and soul - even when they are hard to love and you feel like it's a one-way street right now - that's being faithful.
Love your child relentlessly - even when they are unappreciative, dismissive and unkind to you - that's being faithful.
Show up and do your best work - even when the boss doesn't seem to acknowledge your sweat, let alone reward it - that's being faithful.
Keep serving with a cheerful heart in your church whilst you wait for a replacement to come and release you from your commitment - even when you are sure you are called to be doing something else - that's being faithful.
God's promise is that nothing you give will be wasted.
He sees it all. He counts it all. Know that if not in this season, or perhaps if not even in this life - your faithfulness to what He has entrusted to you WILL be rewarded.
