Sabbath Rest – Great is thy Faithfulness

This week I’ve been thinking a lot about these last nineteen (19!) years we’ve spent in our motor home traveling around this country. We’ve been over some high roads and some low roads. Some smooth roads and some rough roads. But regardless of the road we’re traveling, we have never doubted that God’s faithfulness has been with us through it all. I’ve shared this hymn before – but it always speaks Truth.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changes not, Thy compassion, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

[Refrain] Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.


Pardon for sin and a peace that endurest
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
