Great is Thy Faithfulness…

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!

This is the chorus of the great hymn, “Great is Thy Faithfulness” written by Thomas O. Chisholm.  He wrote the poem in 1923 about God’s faithfulness over his lifetime.  The biblical lyrics reference, Lamentations 3:22-23 “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

I don’t know how many times I have sung this hymn, mostly without really thinking about what the lyrics mean.  I’m in awe of the faithfulness of God, just in my own life.  To think, believe, and trust that His mercies are new every single day, He gives me absolutely everything I need, I will not be consumed (destroyed), and His compassion never ends.  Wow!!

Music is something that’s inspiring and can match your moods. I am encouraged by music on a regular basis. It seems to speak in ways I cannot.  Somedays it seems as though lyrics to songs say what I am unable to articulate.  It is a language, with strong feelings, a story and memories.  It transcends all boundaries of communication. It affects your brain in many different ways, and at deep levels.

The playlist on my phone has a wide variety of music.  Sometimes it makes me laugh when I look through the list of songs. Anything from: Show tunes, Children’s, Disney, Christian, Pop, Rock, 80’s, Movie Soundtracks, Rap, Soft Rock, Disco, Dance, Christmas, Comedy and some R&B.

All my sweet parts inside have their favs!  At times, I think it’s what brings us all together as a community (family). Music is a way to unite people together.
