New every morning...great is HIS faithfulness!

Lamentations 3:22-24
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. I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him."

God showed himself to me this morning in this sunrise. He reminded me of this verse above and how much every day is a new clean slate. We don't have to lament over days past and we can optimistically look towards the future because God is FAITHFUL! He is our provider and our keeper. He extends grace when we do not deserve it and he loves us unconditionally. I am thankful for that and for all that he's blessed me with.

Jesus, thank you for revealing yourself to me today in the beauty of this sunrise. You are everywhere, we just have to stop and take a look around. I love you and ask that you bless my day and make it fruitful. May all the glory go to you, for you alone deserve it. Amen!

That was just beautiful and I couldn't agree more! Each day is such a precious gift from Him to us. With the passing of my Pops it becomes all to real to me just how precious we should take each day and love each person in it...Love you my friend....H1
