Ever Faithful

II Timothy 2:13 “If we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.” (NIV)*


Ever faithful

There, you stand.

Woven in creation’s song

Written in history, long.

Ever faithful, ever true

I fall short,

not so—

My faithlessness is no indication of your commitment to me. If I loose my way, step off the path or head in the wrong direction, you remain faithful. You cannot be unfaithful—it’s not your character. You are God.
