His Steadfast Love


 

“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

 

I woke up this morning to a text and a heart full of ache for a dear friend. 

A hard choice was made, but even harder choices are coming, and I cannot begin to fathom what this morning must feel like for her. 

And as I put my make up on this morning-fighting back tears- I thought about how blessed I am in this moment with my little family tucked safely into my beautiful new home. My children and my husband are happy and well. And then I glanced outside toward the beautiful sunrise that greets me each morning in this precious place we call home. 

And Lamentations came to mind.

I may not understand what today is going to look like for my friend, but I do know what it’s like to have mornings when it feels like the sun may not rise. 

I know what it’s like to have mornings where all you can do is lean into His mercy and grace. 

I know what it’s like to have mornings when it’s only by His power your feet hit the floor that day. 

I may not be in that season right now, but I have been there. 

So today I’m praying new mercies for my sweet friend. 

I’m praying for peace that passes all understanding. 

And I’m praying that today God reveals hope to her as beautiful as the sunrise in a way that only He can.

Count your blessings, friends.

Even if they are hard to find. 

 Because He’s got the day. 

The week.

The month.

The year.

He’s got it, and He’s going to show you beautiful sunrises to prove it.
