I experienced a painful sciatic injury last month after exercising and have been reminded since then of just how easily I falter. I am very driven to achieve so when I am unable to cross things off of my to-do list I can get really frustrated. However, I am learning to find great joy in the One who gives me great joy. He is the very definition of UN-faltering!
Webster defines unfaltering as: “not wavering or weakening”. James 1:17 comes to my mind and I have to share it in the version I originally memorized,
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.”
I think it was about 8th or 9th grade when I committed that verse to memory and it has stuck with me since.
I cling to the truth that God doesn’t change, he doesn’t falter.
He cannot be shaken.
I am so thankful for His strength when mine is gone!
