“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3:21-23
Sometimes, the hardest person in the world to forgive is the one staring back at us in the mirror. But we can fully let go of the past when we come to understand that God has great purpose for our future, believing that He is able to redeem all things, every single one, for His glory.
We can look square in the face of every failure, every struggle, every painful moment, every weakness, and every lie or accusation, suddenly realizing it no longer has control over us. Because we've been bought with a price and we're free in Him. His mercies are new, fresh, each morning. His love endures forever. His faithfulness is great.
If you find yourself facing hard times today, these verses are His reminders to our hearts and spirits – there is great hope and good still ahead. Jesus is the Way, and He's the Way-maker. He's forging through the darkness, confusion, and struggle, to bring His strength and purpose to future days.
Keep pressing through my friends.
He is with you.
