Lamentations 3:22-23New Living Translation (NLT)
22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends![a]
His mercies never cease.
23 Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.
What assurance it is to know that if we are blessed enough to wake up we receive a brand new gift each and every day-Mercy.
What exactly is Mercy
According to Webster
: kind or forgiving treatment of someone who could be treated harshly
: kindness or help given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation
: a good or lucky fact or situation
Yep, all those describe me perfectly. God, because of who he is, doesn’t give me what I deserve. He gives me another CHANCE. He knows I have some good in me (deep down somewhere) so he spares my life.
Just thinking about what COULD’VE and probably SHOULD’VE happened to me is enough to make me fall on my knees and cry out “thank you Lord”
Maybe I take his goodness for granted, maybe I think I will forever wake up and experience a second, third, hundredth chance.
Maybe I need to repent now so that I can continue to receive my special gift everyday.
I am glad to know His love never ends even when my love for him is questionable.
