The naughty squirrel is eating at our bird feeder, the noisy jay is picking at the last of the suet cake and the sun is shining over our yard. It is Labor Day and for once we are not rushing somewhere.
What a summer we have had!
“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 ESV
Can I remind you, remind me that Jeremiah penned these words when all hope was lost for Israel? He said this after he had been thrown in a cistern, mocked and imprisoned for speaking what was true. Somehow, in the midst of all that was wrong, he could still see that God had not given up on his people.
It is good to remember, when we have a day to look, that through everything, the good, the bad, the arguments, the praises and ministry, the selfishness and meanness, God has been and will always be good.
He will be faithful.
His love for us will never end!
Therefore, for all my days yet to come, I will hope in Him.
