There are seasons in our life and times of change. This spring our family made changes – and they have led to new lifestyle changes.
And for each of these seasons that we experience, the Holy Spirit speaks to us the words we need to hear and provides us direction. Over the last few months this is the scripture that has stayed with me through each day:
“Yet this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: 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.” – Lamenations 3:22-24 (NIV)
Indeed, great is God’s faithfulness! It is so reassuring to know that we will not be consumed, and that each morning God’s compassion and mercies are new. I wonder how often we wake up also resolved to live each new day with a fresh start.
If you are feeling down, heavy, or burdened–if you need a fresh start, take some time now to pray and seek God’s will for your life. You do not have to live with the burdens from yesterday because God’s mercies are new every morning.
