Faithful One - TSMSS


You know those Fridays that seem like Mondays? The ones that the moment your feet touch the floor, you KNOW there are two left ones down there tripping about. As the day rolls on, and things continue in that manner, a third left foot appears and seems to constantly be kicking your behind...

*sigh*

Not a lot of Hallelujah’s being shouted out today...

Oh, I still acknowledged my blessings and thanked the Lord a few times that things weren’t any worse, but my praise was not there. And I knew it...and God knew it...

After contemplating the possible burial of the three phones in our office (I already had a plot picked out in the soggy back yard), my oldest said farewell for the day and I prepared to do some things that I really didn’t feel much like doing.

*sigh*

I staggered hopped into the car and started down the road. After a pathetic pity party with myself, I pushed the button to start some music.

I find no hope within to call my own
For I am frail of heart, my strength is gone
But deep within my soul is rising up a song
Here in the comfort of the faithful one

Oh Lord, forgive me...how could I ever NOT remember when You were so faithful...Hallelujah!

I walk a narrow road through valleys deep
In search of higher ground, on mountains steep
And though with feet unsure, I still keep pressing on.
For I am guided by the faithful one.

Faithful, faithful to the end,
My true and precious friend,
You have been faithful,
Faithful, so faithful to me

I see your wounded hands, I touch your side
With thorns upon your brow you bled and died
But there’s an empty tomb, a love for all who come
And give their hearts to you, the faithful one.

Faithful, faithful to the end,
My true and precious friend,
You have been faithful,
Faithful, so faithful to me

And when the day is dawned and when the race is run
I will bow down before God’s only Son
And I will lift my hands in praise for all you’ve done
And I will worship you, my faithful one.

Please visit Signs, Miracles, and Wonders to be blessed...

Hallelujah...amen ...sweet blessings Karen...so sorry that your day was such a hopeless pain...but isn't it GREAT when we can push a button and just the right song seems to speak to our spirit!!! Ohhh HE IS SO FAITHFUL!

This was the perfect song to complete my TGIF...today God is first (thank God it's Friday, too)!

Never heard this one by Selah but I really love it and the video... (sigh)

May you find HOPE within, may your heart be strengthened with no frailties, may deep within in soul... this song rise up & speak truth into every fiber of your being and each thought. So you can
know that our friend was there all through this day and HE is faithful to the end...awesome words...let us worship Him together!

Hoping that TSMSS builds you up to lift your hands, bow down or jump for victory cuz
Friday's done & you have WON...
the race in the sun to the Son
has just begun...once more for fun

There's something in the phrase "faithful to the end" that makes me pause and think of what I ought to have been doing to keep my end of the bargain. Wonderful pick!

Amen .. I felt so refreshed by your post and the song. Sometimes we felt weak and burdened and oftentimes we are filled with worries and doubts.. But Praise the Lord for reminding us again and again that He is a faithful God that He carries our burdens in His shoulders..

I know exactly what you are talking about! It feels exactly like tripping around the day with 2 left feet. What a great way to describe it!

Love the song!

awwww! My Fridays have felt like Mondays recently too! I hope it isn't because you have had the extra burden while I have been working! I know that is why it feels like Monday to me for sure!

I find myself forgetting about the blessings all too often, and focusing on the trials. This was very uplifting!
