35 Years of God's Faithfulness


It's my birthday. 
Today I thank the Lord for 35 years of life and for His faithfulness to me throughout those years. 

Psalm 126:3 "The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy."  

He is faithful and comforts us at any age when those tears flow.

He is faithful as we grow and do many things for the first time.

God is faithful through the childhood years of fun and play, when life is pure innocence.

The Lord is faithful through the tumultuous teen years and even those years of pesky braces. 

He has been faithful through studying, schooling and graduation... high school and college. 

The Lord has been faithful to me during the newly married phase of life.

And I proclaim His faithfulness to me now, 35 years old, in the mommy stage of life.

"Because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never mail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!" (Lam 3:23)

I know not what the future holds for me, as far as my days on this earth. But I know that when my time on earth is over, I will continue to praise my Lord for His faithfulness to me throughout this life and the next. 

This life is short, whether I live to be 40 or 100. Days and years pass quickly and life fades. BUT... 

Eternity will last forever. I am so thankful for God's grace towards me that I can know with certainly where I will spend eternity. I will be with my Lord, because through Christ He made a way for me to be with Him forever. Christ is my Redeemer, the Savior of my soul. 

He holds my life and breath in His hands. 
And I trust Him completely. 

Thank you, Father, for the years you've given me. 
May I live each moment and each day as unto You, for Your glory. Amen!
