I just wrote a letter to my thirteen-year-old granddaughter about steadfastness. As I was writing, I felt impressed to blog about it here also. Women of all ages need steadfastness in their lives. With all of the ups and downs life gives us we need that underlying strength of mind above all else. Steadfast means to "lean", to "rest", to "support". It is the idea of leaning on the Lord to support us at all times.

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee (ISA. 26:3). Who doesn't want or need perfect peace? It is available to us when we choose to lean on the Lord for support. We have to actively do our part in trusting Him. It is a choice we make every day of our lives.

This is just a gentle reminder to you. You already know this but sometimes it helps to be reminded. I have often wondered why people frantically call the pastor before they think of turning to the Lord? When life falls apart at the seams, we must immediately call on Him first. He is "OUR ROCK", "OUR FORTRESS", and "OUR HIGH TOWER".

The longer we serve the Lord, the more difficult the trials become. Life gets more challenging with age. In the midst of all of it, we see a loving Father that is always constant. What a great rest is available to us when we choose to be stedfast, unmovable and always abounding!
