So many problems.
Surrounded on all sides by pieces of our broken hearts.
Bent under a burden of grief.
Confused and disillusioned.
Our dark days on this earth are many. The writer of Lamentations joins us in making a long list of the trials and issues around him. Then – right in the middle of the mess – he writes some of the most well-known words in the Bible. Here is a 2018 version:
Because of the LORD’s great love for us, our pain and problems do not consume us.
God’s compassion for us is renewed every morning.
Great is your faithfulness, Father.
My faith, my hope and my joy is found in my Father God. He is always beside me. I trust him to provide the strength and wisdom I need each day.
He is a good, good father to all of us who seek him. Those who walk closely with him will find peace and grace.
Great is your faithfulness, Abba Father.
