If you follow me on facebook, you may have already seen this post. I shared it earlier this week…..
Thursday morning, I was headed to Panera to work on my computer, and I was taken back by the bright, beautiful sunrise. It made me think of a verse that I fell in love with when I was in High School. I had a friend who’s younger sister, who was in Middle School, committed suicide. I couldn’t get a grip on that. How could this young, beautiful girl think life was not worth living anymore? What was so bad that she couldn’t face another day?
When I found Lamentations 3:22, 23 it spoke to me.
“The Lord’s unfailing love and mercy still continue,
Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise.”
I loved that it said “as sure as the sunrise.”
When I got up this morning, I didn’t ask myself, “I wonder if the sun is going to rise today?” We never ask that. We believe and know that it will rise each day.
It is the same thing with God’s love. We never have to think, “I wonder if God is going to love me today?”
Nope. His “unfailing love and mercy still continue…as sure as the sunrise.”
I wish so badly I could have shared that with the young girl who took her life. Maybe she needed those words of hope?
If you are overwhelmed. If things seem hopeless. If you feel you cannot face another day.
Remember that the Lord’s unfailing love is never ending, never changing. As sure as the sunrise, His love will greet you each morning.
The world may say God’s not real, but He IS, friends. And the peace that He gives is beyond our comprehension and understanding.
My prayer for you is that you will know and accept that Love for YOU today.
