New Mornings, New Mercies

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning…  (Lamentations 3. 22-23a  NRSV)

We have our faults, failings and shortcomings. We stumble and fall. We speak out of turn, frown when we should smile, even elapse back into an old habit (hopefully not for long.) Praise God for his faithfulness, for his steadfast love and mercy; praise Him for new mornings with new opportunities!

The apostle St. Paul said, “I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ, (Philippians 1. 6 ESV)  and God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” (II Corinthians 9. 8 ESV)

Praise God for His unfailing love and mercy, and for His work in our lives. Praise Him for His forgiveness, healing and reconciliation. Praise God for being our God and Father, by His Spirit, through Jesus Christ our Lord!
