It’s amazing how letting a little sunshine in your eyes in the morning can feel so good after a few dismal days of rain.
I had a rough morning yesterday - I tend to over-think things to the point where I become a mopey slug and feel like crap, but I had two great people on my side the whole time: God and Ben. Talk about teamwork - all the unnecessary fluff was gone instantly, replaced by caring encouragement and loving silliness.
I am blessed beyond measure to have a relationship with such a wonderful God, and also with such a dear heart like my Uncle Ben.
My devotions today were in Lamentations, which seemed odd at first to me (considering the title and the content of the book) until I read the passage in the 3rd chapter (verses 22-26):
“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. I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.’ The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.”
How wonderful they are indeed. It’s a passage that speaks for itself - no commentary needed. Only meditation.
