“The Daily Mercies”

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.   It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning:  great is they faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:  21-23

This is one of my favorite Scriptures!  No matter what we’ve done, where we’ve been or what life throws our way, God’s mercies are brand new every single day!  The title of this post was one of my options for my blog header.  If I had my own paper or magazine I think I would call it “The Daily Mercies”.  Sounds like the title of a newspaper to me.  One that I think I just might want to read.

After the tragic news of the death of Steven Curtis Chapmans’s daughter, Maria, this verse has taken on new meaning.  My heart, along with so many others, has broken for this family and this teenage son.  Cammie has her own car now and Courtney is taking Driver’s Ed the next two weeks.  Permit and another teenage driver coming soon.  And I have a toddler.  Horrible tragedies such as Maria’s happen, though we simply have trouble understanding.  I pray that the Lord’s brand new mercies cover them.  His compassions surely will not fail!  During this time of grief for this family, as we unite together in prayer, let us wait and watch expectantly for the Lord’s great faithfulness to prevail.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.  Psalm 116:15
