If we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny his own." - 1 Timothy 2:13

Dear Jesus, what it must have been like for you to remain faithful to Peter and Judas while they were all over the map that fateful night.  One came back to you.  The other went away forever.  But you were there for them both.  And you are there for me too.  It is strangely comforting that you are seething in silence over my wayward choices but patiently waiting for me to come to my senses.  You remain faithful while I jump around in my weaknesses.  I am coming back to you now.  Forgive me, and strengthen me to be constant in my love, faith and life toward you today.  Help me make the right choices even if they cost me friends or friendliness.  You cannot deny me and I don't want to deny you. AMEN

"God's faithfulness rests on who he is, not on what you are doing." - Paul David Tripp
