New Mercies



The steadfast love of the
Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23






I have experienced the new mercies of God over and over again in my life, especially since Aiden was born, but I never realized that was what it was until this morning...

...Yesterday Aiden had a rough rough day. He barely napped and he cried just about as often as he did sleep. I spent all day trying different things to figure out what is going on. Stressful to say the least. At the end of the day my spirit wanted to give up, of course I knew I would never because he is my son, but how could I do it again? Today when I woke up I was ready and encouraged and filled with a great feeling of love toward Aiden. Ready to take whatever he threw at me today. As I was changing his diaper and talking to him, it hit me...

HIS MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING!

Thank you LORD!! Seriously, how great is His faithfulness that every morning He gives us new mercies. I don't deserve them and I didn't do anything to feel that way this morning. It is all God. And yet how easy is it to fade back into the blah or discouragement from yesterday as the day goes on? That is not what I want to do today, but instead LIVE in HIS mercies. I need His grace, I can't survive on my own. I need Him.

  3. It's amazing what motherhood will teach you and reveal about the Lord, isn't it? Without those new mercies, I have no idea how I would survive these early baby/toddler years! Although, I'm sure I'll say the same thing as they grow up into the "next" stage :) Glad you are filled up with the Lord's grace for another day! And here's hoping it's an easier one...

  4. Thanks, Rob,
    I've been waiting for you to write something again.:) 2 Cor. 5:17 also comes to my mind. Therefore, if anyone be in Christ, he is a new creation; old things are passed away, behold all things are becoming new. It encourages me that each day God is creating "newness" in me. Love you. Mom A.
