“He is so faithful. Molly, He is so faithful.” 
Lori Hart (September 1973-July 2022)

Lori was my sister. She was my best friend. She was joyful, selfless and a servant of God. She was a true disciple of the Lord every second of her day. 

She would often tell me, “He is so faithful.” Any time we spoke about her cancer she would say, “but He is so faithful.” At the time, I would just nod my head, listen, and agree without fully understanding the magnitude of this concept. After she passed away, I would find myself saying over and over again, “He is faithful.”  

“Lord, what does that actually mean?” I have to admit, I had some questions for Him! “God, what is faithfulness and what is the purpose of it? What will your faithfulness do for me? Why would you take someone who is so faithful to you away from this Earth?” I had no concept of what God’s faithfulness meant for you and me. 

In the last 10 months of experiencing an unexplainable feeling of grief, I have had no choice but to hold on tightly to the Word and promises of God. I have called out in desperation for Him to comfort me or to help me in situations that are out of my control. I have had to make my quiet time with God my priority. When we do this… When we draw near to Him, the unimaginable happens. I witnessed miracles from the Lord that have blessed my family. I have had to suit up with the full armor of God hour by hour to face battles when the enemy is attacking me, my family, or my students(Ephesians 6:10-18). I have experienced anxiety that He has healed me from, I have found joy that is inexplicable, and I have felt nothing but Jesus’ steadfast love for me. 
-Deuteronomy 7:9 “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him 
and keep his commandments.”

I can honestly now say that He has been so faithful to me. I am not going to say that I fully understand, because let’s face it, on this side of our life we will never truly understand God and how mighty and sovereign He is. He is too big for what our human minds can fully grasp. 

Friends, He did not once leave my side. (Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.”) His presence has comforted me every second of my day, and I know He never leaves me. We are His children, and He cares for us more than we can fathom. 

Jesus has led me through my hardest year yet, and He is still leading me. He has blessed my life so sweetly, and I am so thankful that Jesus is my friend. All you and I have to do is trust Him. We need to put all of our faith in Him, and He promises that he will never leave us. These days are so full of anxiety, depression, and loss, and at times it feels as if there is no hope for this dark world. I want to encourage you today to lean into Him with me, because He is our hope! He is our salvation! God sent his one and only son to die for us on the cross; therefore, He has already paid the price for us. Then Jesus rose from the grave and is now alive! If we choose to believe in Him our promise from Him is His Holy Spirit to live within us while we’re here on this Earth. He has already won, and the victory is already His. He is all we need, and guess what? He is so faithful.

2 Thessalonians 3:3 “But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.”

My friends, I pray you hold on to His promises and His hope of everlasting life. I pray that this message blesses your life, your family, and your personal relationship with our one true Savior. For now, I am going to cling to God’s Word, and pray for His promises over your children’s lives. If you are ever feeling hopeless in this life, come find me. I would love to listen and speak with you. 

faith·ful .. remaining loyal and steadfast. ❤️
