Lamentations 3:22-23 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
This is my favorite verse in all of Scripture concerning “life”.
It tells me I get to start over every day. No matter what I messed up, no matter what I failed to do, no matter how discouraging today might be, I get to start over tomorrow with fresh new mercy from our faithful God.
It tells me I don’t have to worry about tomorrow. God is faithful. He’ll be there with a fresh refill of mercy and compassion. Today has enough to deal with. I don’t have to be anxious about the future because of my steadfast Lord.
It tells me to hang in there and don’t give up because I just have to get through today. Just get through THIS day. You can handle one day. Do the best you can. Do what you think is right. Make the best choices you can. Follow God’s leading with a clear conscience. Just for today. Tomorrow you get a new try.
Think It Over: Can you do anything about yesterday? Can you control tomorrow? Do you believe God’s promises? Then get busy living TODAY, forget the past, put the future in God’s hands.
