I am really starting to notice a theme in these postings. I have been really drawn to verses that show God’s faithfulness and His constant presence in our lives. This week is not the same, from Lamentations 3:
22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.
26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.
And then again in Ezekiel, I marked this verse from chapter 34:
16 “I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick…”
While this may be in line with what I have been posting and I may be getting repetitive, I just love these promises from God. No matter how crummy I start to feel, He will not fail me. He will not leave me. I will always have Him to hope in. I have had some nasty migraine headaches these past three weeks and I spend my days moping around the house waiting for my head to stop trying to explode from within. And during that time I get depressed and worried that these headaches are a sign of something even worse within me. But then I read verses like this and I just feel better. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. Amen!
