Faithful and True

Another August First.  God has been so faithful to not only uphold me and strengthen me – every August 1st and the random days in between when my faith begins to wobble –  but to also send me a personal encouragement – something seemingly insignificant to others but, for me, as if straight from Heaven to my heart.  I’ve begun to look for these special things…anticipate them.  Eager for a reminder.  A smile from Heaven – from my sweet boy.   I’m not superstitious or wanting to sound silly but I do know God is a personal Heavenly father who knows our hearts, and our hurts, and who wants us to know Him and how much He cares.

Sunday, a song was sung at church that I have never heard before.  It has probably been around for ages but it was new to me.  And I have been listening to it – and singing it – ever since.  Whatever heartache, hurt or challenge you might face today, or in the days ahead, I pray these lyrics will encourage you too.


As I look back on the road I’ve travelled, 

I see so many times He carried me through; 
And if there’s one thing that I’ve learned in my life, 
My Redeemer is faithful and true. 
My Redeemer is faithful and true.

My Redeemer is faithful and true. 

Everything He has said He will do, 
And every morning His mercies are new. 
My Redeemer is faithful and true.

My heart rejoices when I read the promise 

‘There is a place I am preparing for you.’ 
I know someday I’ll see my Lord face to face, 
‘Cause my Redeemer is faithful and true. 
My Redeemer is faithful and true.

And in every situation He has proved His love to me; 
When I lack the understanding, He gives more grace to me.

My Redeemer is faithful and true. 

Everything He has said He will do, 
And every morning His mercies are new. 
My Jesus is faithful and true.
