I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 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.” - Lamentations 19-24
A lot of the time, life is hard. People hurt us. We struggle, and we sin. And it can be easy to let all of that control how we live. Angry. Hopeless.
But we don't have to let all of that define us.
We have hope!
We have a Father in Heaven who is right beside us, waiting for us to ask for His help. He won't let you be crushed by whatever you are going through. He gives us reason to hope.
Take a minute to think on the words from the hymn, Great Is Thy Faithfulness.
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!
