Good morning, Father!
Thank you so much for renewing my hope! Thank you for waking me up with a more cheerful heart, and for showing me that I can give to you both my “bad” and my “good” — because actually I am neither one! This is really an awesome new concept, and I thank you for letting it sink in and encouraging me! I thank you that all I need do is Love YOU, and all the rest will be taken care of — you will guide me, prepare me, comfort me, encourage me. You are ALL I need. Thank you, Awesome One!
Lamentations 3:20-25 ERV
I remember well all my troubles, and I am very sad.
But then I think about this, and I have hope:
We are still alive because the LORD’S faithful love never ends.
Every morning he shows it in new ways! You are so very true and loyal!
I say to myself, “The LORD is my God, and I trust him.”
The LORD is good to those who wait for him. He is good to those who look for him.
Thank you, Father, for renewing my hope! Thank you for not letting me linger too long in discouragement. Please help me to keep my head up — not because I am productive or helpful or increase my income, but because YOU are always with me, always faithful, always caring for me. I never have an actual reason to droop again! Thank you, Faithful Shepherd! 😀
