I am not consumed by my sadness.
or my problems..
or the chaos in our world.
Because God is always loving and caring for me..
One of my special joys in reading through the Bible every year is when I read words that were used in the old famous hymns. I was raised in a musical, conservative Christian home so these hymns bring back a lot of precious memories.
“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.
As the sun rises each morning, I am reminded of God’s promises.
God’s compassions never fail – I receive more love and grace every morning.
He is never late (even though it can sometimes appear that way to us).
He is never tired.
He is never distracted.
Whenever doubts about God enter my mind, all I have to do is look back. I see God’s faithfulness to me all of my life – day after day, year after year. Even when I wandered, God never left me. He never stopped loving me and caring for me.
Just like he cares for me today.
And I know I can count on him to love me and care for me all of the rest of the days I walk on this earth…and on into heaven.
Great is your faithfulness, oh God, my Father!
