GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS

Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, 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.    Refrain

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!     Refrain

This hymn has been going around in my head for a couple of days now.

I just think that God’s faithfulness is great, that he cares for us in all seasons of our lives, that He is watching over us at all times.

God blessed our children this past week with Encouragement Awards at the Eisteddfod we attended. These awards are funds to help with their music tuition. This was such a blessings as we have been behind with their music fees this year.

We couldn’t believe it, and we were so excited and thankful. I was sitting there as they were getting ready to announce the awards thinking “Oh Lord it would be wonderful it one of the children won one”, but I didn’t think it would happen.  Not because I didn’t think God could do it but because there were so many other children who played so well and were deserving of an award.

So when they both won one, it was wonderful.

As our oldest daughter said God blessed the children for their diligence in practicing and in turn that blessed us as a family.

When everyone had settled down, I had time to think about how blessed we are and how God is faithful to supply all our needs.

Great is His faithfulness

    1. Hey Angie, it is so good to hear from you. Thank you for your comment, it was so wonderful and such a blessing to be able to give their music teacher the money last week. She doesn’t seem to mind us paying late but it does bother us. It is amazing how hymns/ tunes can just pop into our heads depending on our moods.
      I will have a look at that link up thank you, the hymns mean so much more when we know their origin and why someone puts scripture to music.
      Blessings to you and yours and lots of hugs.

  5. “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” is one of my favourite hymns. I had it playing (sung by Cece Winans) in the way to the hospital for my c-section appointment with our first born. I was so nervous and anxious, but that song brought peace to my heart. So, it has a very special place for me.
