Lamentations 3:22-24

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.”

As sure as the sun rises each morning is the truth that God’s compassion and faithfulness are new every morning!

Rushing a sunrise would seem so silly…..

the beauty comes from watching the sun slowly appear, new every morning……

sometimes arising over mountains,

other times amidst dark clouds,

and yet other times painting orange, yellow, and red colors over a canvas of clear blue sky..

So why do I sometimes rush God?

The beauty often comes in the waiting.

Watching Him work and create all along the way in life’s journey,

That’s how I want to live.

So, how do I wait patiently?

I repeat the words, “The Lord is my portion, the Lord is my portion, the Lord is my portion..”

Because He is!

And oh, what a portion He is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you, Lord, for your love that does not consume me because  your compassion, like the sunrise, is new every morning!!!!!

You KNEW that we needed the “new!”
