[The Lord’s] compassions [love] fail not. They are [brand] new every morning. Lamentations 3:22-23
“When I was a child, one of my favorite pastimes was playing on the teeter-totter in the nearby park. A kid would sit on each end of the board and bounce each other up and down. Sometimes the one who was down would stay there and leave his playmate stuck up in the air yelling to be let down. But the cruelest of all tricks was getting off the teeter-totter and running away when your friend was up in the air he would come crashing down to the ground with a painful bump.
Sometimes we may feel that Jesus does that to us. We trust Him to be there with us through the ups and downs of life. However, when life takes a turn and leaves us with bumps and bruises, it may feel as if He has walked away leaving our lives to come painfully crashing down.
But Lamentations 3 reminds us that “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end” (v.22 esv) and that God is faithful to the end even when everything seems to be falling apart. This means that in the midst of our pain, even though we may be lonely, we are not alone. And though we may not feel His presence, He is there as our trusted companion who will never walk away and let us down!” Joe Stowell
Thank You, Lord, that we can trust in Your faithful presence even when we feel alone. Help us to wait patiently for You to manifest Your presence in our lives. Give us strength, wisdom, and discernment during times of uncertainty. Remind us that Your compassion never fails, Your mercies never comes to an end and Your love never gives up on us. Your word says that when we are faithless O’God, You remain faithful and for that and that alone we say, Thank You, Thank You, and Thank You for never letting us down, in Jesus’ name, amen!
