Faithfulness

Read Lamentations 3:21-23

There are many changes in life. Some are expected while others are not. The speed of change can be overwhelming in its rapidity. Finding reliable anchors in a sea of change can

prove difficult. Yet in the words of today’s reading, we are reminded of the faithfulness of God. Each day we are shown  compassion, mercy and love. With the dawn of the day, this is renewed once  again. Because of this we have hope, no matter what may be swirling around us.

The passage today was written during a time when the Israelites were dispersed in foreign countries and living in exile. It is part of the crying out to God, sharing their feelings of woe. The future seemed bleak at best. Yet even while in exile, visions of God’s compassion and love could be found.

As I read this passage, a hymn from my past came to mind.

Whatever you may be experiencing at this time, never lose sight of God’s faithful compassion, mercy, and love.
