The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23 NRSV

Thought

God uses grief to teach you more of God’s faithfulness. When at last you slowly awaken from the coma-like state of grief, you perhaps experience a moment of divine understanding about the faithfulness of God. In that moment your eyes and heart are opened to these eternal truths: God is ageless. God is timeless. God is unchanging. God is for all generations. God is from everlasting to everlasting. God is eternal. God is faithful.

Prayer

God, I stand before you in awe and wonder as I awaken each day to your new mercies. I am grateful for your endless faithfulness to me. Amen.

Assurance

The faithfulness of God endures forever.
