“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” —Lamentations 3:22–23 (ESV)
New every morning. That’s the beauty of a sunrise. It brings with it a new day, a new week, a new year. If we choose to look with a glass-half-empty mindset, it’s just another day, just another week, just another year. But if we look at today through a heart of gratitude, we see each day as a sign of God’s faithfulness to us.
We were not consumed by the trials and the heartaches of the days, weeks, and years before, though in the darkest of times, we may have felt like we might be. We are new every morning, as is the mercy and compassion of God.
I prayed for you today. I prayed that you would not only see but feel the newness of this day, ripe with hope and possibility. I prayed you would feel the compassion of God in whatever you are going through. I prayed you would feel his mercy and his great love.
We are not consumed. We are alive and God’s best is ALWAYS ahead of us, never behind us. Great is his faithfulness.
I prayed for you today.
