Lamentations 3:25-26 niv

lam3(2)

The Lord wants us to look for Him in our lives.
He wants us to know our hope is not in vain.
He wants to hear from us and when we don’t have words
to express ourselves He is listening to the quiet sighs of our hearts.

Do you have times when you sit quietly in His presence?

Lamentations 3:23 nlt

fresh

The year is coming to a close and as we reflect on the year
let’s remember that not one day did we spend apart from God’s love.
There may have been times when He seemed far away.
At those times, He didn’t move away from us we moved away from Him.
He is ever faithful.
He said He will not forsake us and He won’t.
Let’s remember this in the new year.

Sometimes I ask, “Where are You?” 
Maybe the real question is “Where am I?’

What about you?

Lamentations 3:21-23 nas

sunrise in flagstaff2

Whatever has happened today, no matter how frightening or awful,
whether because of our own doing or that of others, we are not defeated.
We need to remember, God is faithful,    
He loves us and His mercy is immeasurable.   
Every morning begins a new day filled with hope.

Have you given up because you feel overwhelmed or defeated?
Have you forgotten the One who loves you without limits and will never abandon you?

Blessings this day of grace,

Because God is faithful we are never without His love and compassion.
His love covers us at night and in the morning we are given a new day.
A new day of His love and mercy and faithfulness.

Will you look for new mercies today and praise God for His faithfulness?

Lamentations 3:32-33 niv

heartd

We all have times when we grieve and times of trouble.
This is not what God desires for us.
When life is hard
 this is when His compassion and love are most evident.

In your times of grief and trouble are you aware of His compassion?
Do you know that His love for you unquestionable and steadfast?
