Psalm 89:8

you are entirely faithful...

even when i am not. even when i fail, when i'm idolatrous, when i give up on you. you are still faithful. where i run out, you continue. where i cannot keep going, you pick me up and carry me. when i stop believing, you remain unchanged. i'm desperate to be faithful, father. i want to be. i'm so weak and weary. o easily beat down and discouraged. help me, jesus. i can't but you can. what does it mean, what does it look like, to find joy in you? to truly trust you and live in that trust which leads to freedom and joy...

all day long rejoicing in your reputation
exulting in your righteousness
it pleases you to make me strong
protection comes from the holy one, our lord.
