His Mercies Are New Every Morning

new every morning

Sitting quietly this morning, once again my heart fills to overflowing and the tears slip from my eyes – no destination or purpose in them – they slide of their own effort – unintentional and not until they begin falling on my shirt do I even take notice.

Some days face me as a mountain looming so high I’m curious how that is going to work out for me – in this not so physically in-shape body. There is no possible way for me to get over it or through it on my own.

And then in my prayerful appeal to God to open doors so clearly there is no doubt which way I am supposed to go – my thoughts move to a scripture I know is perfect for me to focus on today.

And when I find it, my weeping takes over in deep gratitude, knowing it is going to be a great day – it is a new day and God’s promises, His compassions and His mercies are as real today as they were when these words landed on the page a really long time ago in a place far, far away.

    Janet I really enjoy reading your blogs. In fact I am drawn to them. I am in the middle of a very trying year. My mother has been very ill and I am her desiginated POA. It has been an overwhelming burden. Always second guessing myself, am I making the best decisions for her. Having to place her in a home is not bad enough. Family members have used much of her money. There is a lot of bickering and fighting going on. Not saying I am proud of my part in that. But I find I must defend myself in many of the decisions I make. I feel like much of my life is in limbo. It is good to see that there is peace at the end of the rainbow. I too pray to God for guidance and to help me be the kind of person I know I need to be. Your words inspire me and I thank you!

      I prayed this morning that this short little post would find its way to someone in need of it. You are truly going through a lot of really big things right now. Just know you don’t have to do it alone and our God is so crazy big – He handles it much better for us than we could ever imagine it. Thank you for your kind words and for sharing your story with me. May we always be surrounded by people who can lift us up. Our God is AMAZING!!!
