Lent 2021: Great Is Thou Faithfulness by Reverend Aisha Karimah
"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail."

Great Is Thou Faithfulness
The forty days of Lent are an opportunity for me to reflect, meditate and pray. Truth is I have known the Lord for a long time. Years ago, I was fully engaged in community activism. It was activism ignited by my understanding of God’s expectations to show justice and be merciful. For me, following Jesus meant working to end hunger, homelessness and all that is not fair and just. The longer I live, the more determined I am to see a community of love, fairness and justice.
Today, I am continuing to follow the example of Jesus through prayer. Jesus prayed! Even when I am feeling down and out, I still make my way to the Lord in daily meditation and prayer. I have found nothing beats a prayer life. Nothing substitutes for believing God can do anything but fail. As the songwriter wrote, “When I think about the goodness of Jesus and all He’s done for me.”
Believing, I am because GOD IS, enables me to face the problems and circumstances of life, every day. Here’s what I know: the more time, I spend with the Lord; the more time I need to spend. There are many things in life I do not know, but this I know for sure, God Is Real! Each day my prayer is “Thank you Lord! I’ll never forget what You’ve done for me!"
Prayer: Great is Your Faithfulness, Lord!
