I have been thinking recently about how faithful I am as an individual.
I asked myself the following questions:
– Am I faithful to God?
– Am I faithful to myself?
– Am I faithful to others (family, friends, etc.)?
– Am I faithful to my employer?
– Am I faithful to my communities?
By faithfulness, I mean being true to oneself and accomplishing what we say we will do.
Sometimes we all fail to fulfill our promises, which results in unfaithfulness. That’s one of the reasons why I rarely make promises. Often I tell people that I will be of assistance to them without necessarily promising to accomplish the task. Some of them will then say: you promise me, right? I usually reply and say, “I will do my best by God's grace.” Some of them get surprised and even upset. I am just learning to guard my heart, mind and space. That being said, I have learned that I can’t do things independently over the years. It’s not by my power. I need God's grace to accomplish all the tasks on my plate.
The Bible says in Zachariah 4:6 that it’s not by power, nor by might, but by the Spirit of God. I, therefore, rely on his spirit.
You know what, God has been faithful over the years and has always helped me pull through every situation stronger than before. This is the reason why I am even writing this post and have my blog. Yes, I have developed a new passion for writing and storytelling. By God's grace, I aim to be faithful to God, myself, my blog, people in my life, my employer and my community.
If I haven’t been faithful to any one of you, please find it in your heart to forgive and release me. I am a human being just like you, and we often fall. But, no matter how many times we fall, we rise again and keep trying. I will keep trying until my last breath.
