abiding(adj.) continuing without change: "an abiding faith."
enduring, imperishable, unceasing: "an abiding belief"; "imperishable truths"
My faith is not abiding by the above definition. My faith often takes a beating having to deal with the day to day struggles we all face: relationships, finances, sickness, unfulfilled hopes and dreams. I wrestle with my faith often and I fail often. How about you?
I'm learning, though, that faith is a two-way street and that God's faith in me is abiding, continuing without change, enduring, imperishable and unceasing. He never gives up on me no matter how bad things get. He is the perfect and faithful Father.
So the above painting is the first of many I'll be creating over the next 3 months. That's about 12 weeks that I have to prepare for an art fair that I've applied to participate in in September. I should be notified in the next couple of weeks but I want to be prepared and so I begin.
