There are three main verses which I treasure, for their confirmation of His faithfulness. Coz there are days when I get hurt because some one isn’t being faithful to the word they have promised, the job I was offered, an agreement was broken…
And I rest my hurting heart once again upon His shoulder, and allow the faithful One to show me:
