“Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “ The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “ Therefore I hope in Him!” Lamentations 3:22-24
I was probably being a bit dramatic yesterday… Today we took most of the day off from actual lessons (just a few this morning) and met with some friends at our local spray park for a picnic and some fun and fellowship. It was exactly what I needed! I didn’t have to do or say anything, just relax and enjoy the company of my friends, while my children enjoyed some of theirs. Isn’t it wonderful that God provides mercy and compassion to us and that we can hope in Him. I haven’t been in the word enough lately and I feel it. I have been feeling like the author of Lamentations, like maybe God shuts out my prayers and abandons me, but He doesn’t and He never will.
After today I am feeling refreshed and I know I am being obedient to God even when I get grumpy. This is not about me! I urge you to read Lamentations 3. Good stuff if you are feeling discouraged. :)
“The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.” Lamentations 3:25
