It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22-23

The Lord provides mercy each day and I am thankful.  It is a renewed gift every morning that we experience His mercy.  His mercy gives us a fresh start and an opportunity to begin again.  The Lord shows us compassion and patience that is wrapped in His love for us.  His mercy is great and unfailing when I present my life to Him.  He sees me; my whole life, the effort, the personal struggles, my hopes and my dreams.  He sees the successes and the shortcomings.  Yet His mercy is still available to me.  I am humbled that His unmerited grace and mercy allow me to begin again with each new day.  I am thankful for this day and seek to be a good steward of all that He has given me to move forward in my purpose.

Now let your unfailing love comfort me, just as you promised me, your servant. Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live, for your instructions are my delight.

Psalms 119:76-77

DSC02667The faithful love of the Lord never ends!, His mercies never cease.

Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:22-23

The Lord’s mercy is renewed each morning. We can start a new day with a fresh supply of mercy from our Heavenly Father.  I am so thankful for His mercy that allows me to experience His blessings even though I don’t deserve it.  I am so thankful for His grace that gives me unmerited access to be in relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  I thank and praise His name for His grace and His mercy that blanket my life in ways beyond my imagination. I am so humbled by His attention to my life.  We thank and praise Him for His mercy.  We bless His name for His grace.  The Lord is merciful, loving and kind and we are thankful.

Great is Your mercy towards me Your loving kindness towards me Your tender mercy, I see Day after day

Forever faithful towards Always providing for me Great is Your mercy towards me Great is Your grace

It Starts Now!

DSC02697For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6 NASB

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Everything I have yet to experience starts now. The dreams, accomplishments, the places I want to see, the languages I want to learn, the quilt I want to make and the better health I want to create in my life. It is sometimes hard to see the start of a new day as a place of beginning for what will take the rest of my days but new mercies come with the dawn. A renewed spirit comes with a rested mind. A new start comes with a decision to do so, making a conscious effort to focus on the things that matter.

So we begin again, reminded of the dreams of my heart for my life and my family. Recognizing the power of God’s blessing and favor in guiding my steps along the journey; Being assured that the Holy Spirit will guide me toward greater love, compassion and more of His kindness to those around me; Having the full confidence and faith knowing that He is perfecting, that which concerns me.

It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
