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. (NIV)
As I walked along the sidewalk of the University of Kentucky I pulled an index card from my jean pocket. I glanced at the verse, said it aloud, glanced back again. They are new every morning!! I would think, today is a new day. God loves me. He is faithful. He offers unfailing compassion.
God has reminded me of these verses time and time again in many different seasons of life. I will never forget waking up many winter mornings before we left Kentucky clinging to these verses. I needed them. I needed Him. His mercy. His compassion. His forgiveness. His second chances. During that season I said and did a lot of hurtful things. I felt swallowed up by life around me, but God showed me that His compassions never fail. Just as He was faithful to Israel He was and is faithful to me!
Through these verses, and the entire book of Lamentations, God has taught me that my failures and my disobedience may result in consequences, but they do not change His love for me. They do not affect His faithfulness. Praise the LORD!
