Today is a day of new beginnings and restored joy. Today offers fresh breath, clearing air and hopeful resolution. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow carries no guarantee, but right here, right now, life is at hand. “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him’” Lamentations 3:22-24. Not all days are full of joy, peace, or security, but God remains our portion through it all. New mercies, He will bring, each morning. In the middle of one of the saddest books in the Bible, Lamentations, is the promise of new life, stirring hope, and the faithfulness of a God who will provide. It is of no consequence that these verses are placed in the middle of lamenting despair. It is God’s way of showing us, that in the moments of today are the mercies of the moment. Today may drain your spirit dry, but may God be the portion of mercy that satisfies your thirsty soul. Great is His faithfulness; bright hope for the morning.
