Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
(Lamentations 3:22-23, NIV)
When I fail to trust God, I fail.
And I have failed so often.
Sometimes it’s been a troublesome, recurrent sin.
But in all these years, I have never used up His mercies.
We draw on them over and over, and
they are never diminished.
They are “new every morning.”
I feel ashamed and presumptuous to come to Him again for forgiveness.
But He asks me to come, and
I come in obedience.
Lord, in obedience,
I trust Your mercy once again.
