Word Filled Wednesday–New Every Morning

WFWlogo

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,

Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning;

Great is Your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22,23

As the New Year approaches, it gets me anxious to evaluate how things are going in my life and to purpose to seek new qualities and characteristics.  Often it can be tempting to feel deflated when I see where I would like to be, but realize how far I am from that place. 

A verse like this brings comfort and strength because any spiritual progress I make is from the Lord and His faithfulness.  He knows me, my strengths, my weaknesses and my failures.  He loves me and has compassion…always…that never run out.  Great is His faithfulness.  That’s worth waking up each day to!

  8. I needed that reminder this morning. I spent my quiet time this morning doing just that - reflecting with God - and it can get overwhelming but these verses are precious reminders of promise. Thanks for sharing.

    I enjoyed your Christmas pictures:) I see the boys got new sweatshirts - what about Momma? Anything special? I really did not take many pictures either. Funny.

    Hope you are enjoying a nice holiday week - and looking forward to another year to walk with our Lord and seek to serve Him more.

    Blessings friend, Jennifer
