Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
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!
