Tu Fidelidad

(Turn off music player at bottom of page before playing.)

Tu fidelidad is grande. Tu fidelidad incomparable es. Nadie como tu bendito Dios. Grande es tu fidelidad.
Your faithfulness is great. Your faithfulness is incomparable. There is no one like You God. Great is Your faithfulness!

I praise You for who You are...that You are faithful and can be trusted.  I thank You for showing us yet again this week just how great Your faithfulness my precious niece and great niece's lives, in my daughters' lives, in my own life.  How could I ever doubt You, Lord?  Yet, so often I do.

My heart is rejoicing at the way You have answered so many of my prayers this week...sometimes exactly as I have asked, sometimes above and beyond anything I could have ever have asked for or imagined, sometimes in a way I would not have hoped, but always in a way that was absolutely perfect, in accordance with Your will for our lives.  Yes, Your faithfulness is incomparable!

My heart is also heavy with burdens of so many friends who are hurting with various things right now.  I think of S & R, sifting through the news that the cyst on his brain is once again filling up with fluid...the surgery they hoped was going to cure him didn't.  I think of D, still in such excruciating pain, more than six weeks after her surgery.  I think of my sister, having major surgery today, due to a second battle with cancer...a new form of cancer...after being cancer free for five years.  I think of B, in the hospital, recovering from a brain injury caused by a head on collision by a drunk driver.

My heart breaks for C, J, M, S all struggling with deep, painful relationship issues...all with wounds so deep they find it hard to move forward in community with other believers...wounds that threaten to destroy them and the ministries You have for each of them.  Then there are D and J who lost two dear loved ones in their family this past week and the pain they are both experiencing right now.  I think of far too many to name, who are struggling with the emotional pain of rejection, abuse, divorce, and more...deeply wounded hearts.

You tell me in Your Word that when I am weary and carrying a heavy burden that I can come to You.  You tell me to cast all of my cares upon You.  You tell me not to be anxious about anything but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving to present my requests to You.  You tell me to ask, seek, and knock.  And so, that is what I am doing.  I am once again, bringing my heavy load and laying it at Your feet, asking You to work on behalf of each of my dear friends and family members; seeking wisdom for any involvement You would have from me.

How reassuring it is to know that You never get tired of me asking, seeking and knocking.  You are never bothered or perturbed  when I come to You with the same request over and over again.  When You bring them to mind, I simply lay them before You, as often as the burden is on my heart.  But, I never need to pick them up and carry them again. For I am laying them at the feet of my God who is faithful...and can be trusted.  I don't have to take these burdens up again because I know I can trust YOU with each and every one of them. 

Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens,  Your faithfulness to the skies.  (Psalm 36:5)

"Know therefore that the LORD Your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands." Deuteronomy 7:9

Hi Debbie,

Thanks so much for this song of praise and a prayer for wounded hearts. I stand in agreement for the needs you've expressed to our Lord.

Blessings and peace.

Sweet Debbie,

First of all, amen. I agree with your requests for so many. God is faithful and I trust He will make a way.

Sorry to hear about all the heartaches in the lives of those you love. I know you are a tender heart, so it's so good to know you aren't carrying the weight of each person. You are passing them to Jesus who carries all He loves. I'm here for you. I pray your sister's surgery is better than expected. I pray full healing for her.

May God bless you with a supernatural peace this weekend as others gather around and pray with you for these precious people.

Much love and hugs,

(I love Marcos Witt's song, thank you)!

Lord, We know that You care for each one of these sweet P's of Debbie. As Debbie gives her cares and each of theirs to You, we ask that You release healing, strength,
power & more of Your grace that covers all of this. Your grace is sufficient. We trust You & praise You for all You are doing in Jesus Name!

"How reassuring it is to know that You never get tired of me asking, seeking and knocking. You are never bothered or perturbed when I come to You with the same request over and over again." So true. Thanks for leading us in prayer this morning.

We sang this song in Quito with the children there. We thought we would need to teach it to them but they already knew it and WOW!...did they know it!!! I have never seen or heard children worship like these children did. Children from the poorest area of Quito...children who get one meal a day when they come to school...they have so very little material things. Yet they would raise their hands and get down on their knees and sing of God's faithfulness. I will never forget this song or the way those children worshiped while singing it.

Such a sincere wonderful prayer. I agree, so many hurting, but you said it right. Cast our cares on the Lord.
