This Week’s Verse: “Yet I call this to mind, and therefore I have hope: because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!” Lamentations 3:21-23 (HCSB)
I don’t know about you, but life is wearing me out. I have a lot on my plate, including homework, projects, an internship, planning a retreat for my major, and finally, trying to edit one of my manuscripts to send to a potential agent.
The work never goes away, and it always feels like I have to slack in one area so I can give more attention to a different one. I don’t mean to complain, really, and my life’s always been this busy, but for some reason, it’s more amplified this week.
All this to say, I need a break.
When I started thinking about the devotion for this week and flipped through my Bible, Lamentations 3:21-23 stuck out to me. While my own personal drive wears down, leaving me impatient and irritable, God’s love for me. His faithfulness never wavers and never will. As verse 23 says, His mercies are new every day, waiting for us to come running to Him.
Are you worn out by everyday life? Go to Him for renewal. His arms are open wide for you to rest in Him.
Prayer: Father, I’m worn out by the world around me. Renew my heart and mind, Lord, so I can continue to live for You. Amen.
