Day 24: Fidelity

fidelityFidelity

: the quality of being faithful or loyal

: the degree to which something matches or copies something else

PRAY: As we approach election day, Lord, I lift up our leaders to you—all those we will elect in the days ahead. Your fidelity, God, gives us, your people, safety and security like a “roof over our world.” I pray that the leaders of our nation would demonstrate that same kind of fidelity—a faithfulness to their positions and to the people they represent that will bring a sense of security to the American people.

Psalm 89:1-2

“Your love, God, is my song, and I’ll sing it! I’m forever telling everyone how faithful you are. I’ll never quit telling the story of your love—how you built the cosmos and guaranteed everything in it. Your love has always been our lives’ foundation, your fidelity has been the roof over our world. You once said, ‘I joined forces with my chosen leader, I pledged my word to my servant, David, saying, “Everyone descending from you is guaranteed life; I’ll make your rule as solid and lasting as rock.”’”

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
