“I’ll never forget the trouble, the utter lostness, the taste of ashes, the poison I’ve swallowed. I remember it all—oh, how well I remember— the feeling of hitting the bottom. But there’s one other thing I remember, and remembering, I keep a grip on hope: God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning…” ~ Lamentations 3:19-24 (MSG)
It’s the morning after what some have called “the worst tornado in history.” For the most part words are escaping me, but one thing I know: in the midst of tragedy, God will prove himself good and loving and faithful. Time and time again. His mercy is new every morning. His loving mercy is fresh today for everyone affected by yesterday’s tragic events.
I’m praying and believing deep in my heart that everyone touched by this remembers this, keeping a grip on hope:
“God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning…”
Pray. Above all else pray. Surround these deeply loved people with your faith and love today.
And keep a grip on hope.
