Lamentations 3:22-24 (Msg)
22-24 - God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over). He’s all I’ve got left.
I believe you'll agree with me when I say that this is a relatively common passage. It has been used for decades to convey a powerful message of optimism to everyone who understands its significance. Every moment of every day, we can carry with us the knowledge that God is genuinely magnificent, and this is something that we are allowed to reflect on. There are several other messages like this one spread throughout the Bible, and we have unrestricted access to finding them. Every passing day affords us a fresh opportunity to carry one of these cherished commitments with us. This one is excellent for times when we feel lost or abandoned. It’s a constant reminder that God is reliable no matter what challenges we experience in life. Not only do we not have to go through this life alone, but every day is a new opportunity to experience God's unfailing grace and love.
Here's Today’s Prayer
Good Morning our Beloved Transcendent Father.
Lord, we acknowledge that we have sinned and beseech You to have mercy on us and to hear our supplications. Please stop gun violence and bring peace to Ukraine and the rest of the world. We need a quick resolution to these wars. Assist all those in positions of authority in carrying out Your will. May Your love and the Holy Angel of Peace descend on our entire planet. Let us each receive the grace to become more holy, so we can love and support one another in these difficult times. Regard us with favor and have mercy on all the wicked people across the world. With all sincerity, we pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen and Aamen.
