His Mercies Are New


Everyday...His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Lamentations 3:22-23


I stand in great need of His mercies and I am deeply grateful a fresh portion is waiting for me every morning. To be sure, I used up every bit yesterday...I'm sure we've all had those days.


Yeah, it was a bit of a hard day and I fell asleep thinking I was an inadequate wife, mother, employee, friend, and any other role I fill. But this morning God so gently reminded me that He's got a stack of new mercies waiting for me and that He loves me with an unfailing love.


That's enough to take my breath away...

I've cried myself to sleep many nights, convinced I'm a failure. Scribbled the word INADEQUATE in my journal. I love this verse you shared and it's such a great reminder that His mercies ARE new!

I look forward to getting to know you, Company Girl!! :)

Oh, amen. I have to remind myself of this sometimes daily.

I missed dropping by here and seeing the faces of your beautiful girls!

I dont know if you've had a chance to look through some of the kits, but if you have founds some that you like, let me know - I will probably start working on yours in the next week or so.

I am so in need of mercy right now, and understanding of HIS plans. You are a good blogger and I'm glad that we have this Blogosphere friendship.

What a sweet, open and "real" post! You are a beautiful woman of God - I often remind myself and am OH, SO THANKFUL that His mercies are NEW and fresh EVERY MORNING!

"Ahhhh..."
