Lamentations 3:23 They [his mercies] are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:23 kjv)
I am not a morning person.
I'm more of a sunset kind of woman!
For me to see a sunrise is a rare occurance.
Until lately. I've committed myself to getting up early for prayer and devotions (thank you, Susan :) I have a cozy little nook in my bedroom that faces east. I'm actually enjoying seeing the sunrise peak through the huge Ponderosa pine trees.
I began pondering this verse after reading some other friend's blogs who were led to write about His tender mercies. It was like the Lord gave me this spectacular sunrise to hit home His truth.
His mercies are new every morning.
A couple of days before our big Christmas Day snowstorm, it had snowed a few inches during the day then, in the middle of the night, we had a rainy sleet that left a layer of ice on the pine needles. Oh, I wish a picture could capture the spectacular scene that awaited me the next morning that literally unfolded before my eyes. As the sun rose, the ice-laden pine needles began to individually glisten a bright sparkling orange. It was amazing--and only lasted for less than a minute.
You may have woken up this morning to a gorgeous sunrise or an overcast, snowy day. But, just as sure as the sun did rise--new and unique in every way--so we can be sure of his new tender mercies.
Great is Your Faithfulness!
It's All SUNRISE Good!
