Faithful is He

It is sometimes easy to have faith at the start of a long journey. There is excitement and anticipation. Energy levels run high. And it is certainly easy to have faith as you near the goal or the end of a long journey. But what about the long stretch in the middle?

That is where I see myself and many others these days. At nearly 47 years of age I am far from the beginning of my journey. And hopefully I am reasonably far from the end of my journey as well! So in this middle of the journey I hold on to Scriptures like these.

He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
I Thessalonians 5:24 NKJV

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23 NKJV


  1. At 26, my journey is much closer to the beginning then the middle in comparison to you. However, I have been in the midst of a "wandering" time for so long that it is beginning to take a toll on my little faith. So your post is an encouragement and a reminder that He who allows me to wander is the same one who is faithful to lead me.

  2. Paul, thanks for your comment. I am glad to be an encouragement today.

    How did you find my blog?

  3. I went searching for Nazarene, holiness and Wesleyan blogs. You were one of the few who seemed to be a faithful blogger and had quality posts that interested me and so i added you to my Google reader.

    Keep up the good work on your posts. They are an encouragement.

  4. Paul, I certainly will try to keep posting. Your comments are equally encouraging.


  5. So at 47 years...Biblically you are only just one-third of the way through this journey

    Paul-Google Reader?
