What is Faithfulness?

Jessie is a senior English major.  She enjoys cuddling, singing, being sassy, going on fun and exciting adventures, and laughing... a lot.  

faith·ful [feyth-fuhl] adjective:
1. strict or thorough in the performance of duty: a faithful worker.
2. true to one's word, promises, vows, etc.
3. steady in allegiance or affection; loyal; constant: faithful friends.
4. reliable, trusted, or believed.
5. adhering or true to fact, a standard, or an original; accurate: a faithful account; a faithful copy.
Faithfulness is something that we as Christians tend to grapple with at some point or another during our individual walks with Christ.  It is far too simple for us to become discouraged and weak during times of turmoil and in the rage of a life storm.  Often during times of trouble we will find ourselves questioning God and His intentions-- but fear not!  The Lord our God is faithful to us always, as He told Joshua in Joshua 1:5, “No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life!  Just as I was with Moses, so will I be with you.  Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Because of this promise, it is wicked important that even during our hard times we turn to God and remain faithful to Him without question... After all, if He can promise us that He will never leave nor forsake us, isn’t it only fair that we should be able to do the same for our Creator?
