I’ve got to say that the last few weeks have been difficult. Both professionally and personally there have been a few highs and a lot of lows. I have felt like there is a spiritual war being fought all around me to the point that it feels like a heavy weight on my mind and heart. The tears have come easily the past few days and I feel physically and spiritually “worn out.”
But I am not without hope. I have God’s Word, including the words He gave Jeremiah, which are written in Lamentations 3:21–23, He now gives to me:
This I recall to my mind,So even though I may feel like I’m being consumed, I’m not, because of the Lord’s mercies. Every morning He gives me a fresh “batch” of compassion—and truly, truly great is His faithfulness. You know, I’m glad I decided to write a blog about this because just writing it has already helped me and given me hope that I greatly needed. I pray that it will encourage and bless you, too!
Therefore I have hope.
Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
