Forever Faithful

This past Sunday at church our youth worship leader sang the song "The Lord Our God". For some reason this song has really been laying on my heart this week. The chorus goes:

The Lord our God is ever faithful

Never changing through the ages
From this darkness
You will lead us 
And forever we will say 
You're the Lord our God 


I know several people who are struggling right now. Some of the struggles are small, while others are giant mountains that seem impossible to climb. This song really spoke to me, reminding me that no matter what the circumstance, no matter where our heart may be, God is faithful and that will never change. He will be there, whether we want Him to or whether we think He is, to bring us through every situation.

I remember when the doctors told us Allison was going to die. It was a very dark and long period in my life, and to be honest, for a long time I wasn't sure I believed in God anymore. We were good people. We were kick-butt parents. We were faithful to God. But in the end, none of that mattered. I can now look back and see ways God was faithful during that heartbreaking time, even though I couldn't and didn't want to see it.

I don't know, and I will never understand, why good people suffer. Bad things do happen to good people. I don't understand God's purpose or plans in many situations, but I do know that He is faithful in every situation. So to those who are struggling right now, hang in there. No matter where your heart may be, no matter the situation, no matter the circumstance, He is there.

Hey Alexis,

My name is Joe Pinzone and I’m casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We’d love to film in Japan and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The contributors on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. If you’d like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me at joepinzone@leopardusa.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.
