Today’s reading is from the book of Lamentations, chapter 3, verses 19 through 24. As we hear it together, I wonder what God’s Spirit wants me to hear about faithfulness?
19 I remember how I suffered and wandered.
I remember how bitter my life was.
20 I remember it very well.
My spirit is very sad deep down inside me.
21 But here is something else I remember.
And it gives me hope.
22 The LORD loves us very much.
So we haven’t been completely destroyed.
His loving concern never fails.
23 His great love is new every morning.
LORD, how faithful you are!
24 I say to myself, “The LORD is everything I will ever need.
So I will put my hope in him.”
Faithful God, we pray that the words we heard today with our ears will be planted inside us, in our hearts. Please help these words to grow in us and to blossom into good, faithful fruit in our lives. May all that we do and say give honor and praise to you, our faithful and loving Creator. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
