Lamentations 3:21-26

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 
It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul;
 therefore will I hope in him. 
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD . 

These are the verses James is learning. 
These words apply
directly to yesterday's events. 

It is of the LORD's mercies we are not all dead...
We must all learn to quietly wait
for the LORD to work out things for us rather than getting all in huff
when it seems like life isn't going our way.
God is so very compassionate and this 
 is why I still have hope.

for James, for Missy.... for me.

The LORD is good,
that's why we are still here.

Thanks for the words of hope this morning. Our day has not started off well and I needed to hear this.

Blessings to you dear friend! Hope is so important to me and something I am beginning to see a need in others. Scripture memorization is something we are focusing more on as well... so many thoughts, I need to get back to blogging... I think I can focus a little more... a big issue has come full circle and my heart has new hope... I will message you later about it. :)
