Take Heart Believer: A new day is coming!

The world attempts to draw us into the pit almost daily, hourly, every second. It is in the news. Online. Everywhere! The economy, foreign policy, the government, the state of our country . . . what is there to look forward to in such a dreary climate.

"The unfailing love of the Lord never ends!…Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. " Lamentations 3:22-23 NLT

The Lord is good at all times. He cares for those who love Him, everyday. Today is a new day and everyday given after that will be a new day too. Why? Because of the Lord's faithfulness to those whom He loves and whom love Him! That is a covenant to start and end each day with remembering, and then declaring!

Our life does not always directly reflect the Father's faithfullness if you see only in the physical and only in the "now". Take the words and life of Thomas Obadiah Chisholm. He was a Methodist minister, who due to failing health, had to resign after just 1 year of service! He never let his health and circumstances hinder his calling to ministry. He wrote and he wrote well. He was published very little and hardly ever received compensation for his poetry. His, seemingly meager income, came from his job selling life insurance. Still, he never failed to testify to the greatness and faithfulness of God in his life. These are the well-loved and remembered words from this man:

"Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,There is no shadow of turning with Thee;Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not;As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.Great is Thy Faithfulness!Great is Thy Faithfulness!Morning by morning new mercies I see;All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!"

~ Thomas Obadiah Chisholm

What trials have befallen your life?
What circumstance of your life causes you to greive?
Take heart, Oh beliver, for your Lord renews you daily and His promises with you!
Do not worry, do not complain and do not stumble . . . for after the darkness of night comes the newness of another day. Another day that is full of the Lord's faithfulness, grace and mercies to you. . . those to whom He loves and whom love Him!

Take comfort in your Creator!

Be blessed.
