Lamentations 3

I am thankful for mornings, even though I have never considered myself a 'morning person.' When I get super tired I just feel so overwhelmed.
Last night was one of those nights.
I opened by Bible to read Psalms last night. The first passage I read was so encouraging. As I was going to sleep last night I got to thinking about this passage in Lamentations. The first two verses here are so well known. Just about every Christian could quote them. The next few verses are not quite as well known. I think they were more powerful to me this morning as the first two verses.

It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

Friends, God is so good. No matter what the circumstances we are in, He is always faithful and his mercies are never ending.
