New Every Morning

One of the things I love about a young child is their curiosity and interest in "newness". I think about my daughter in the photo above and how she wanted to really investigate and take in the teeny tiny weeds flowers that were springing up amongst the grass.

I have to wonder ... how many times am I too busy rushing or preoccupied to take in the "newness" that God offers to me each and every day? Lamentations says how His mercies are new EVERY morning. E-V-E-R-Y morning! Our Lord is not confined by a frugal budget in the area of compassion, my friends. Isn't that a wonderful truth?

"Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”

Lamentations 3:22-24

Just as little tiny flowers will soon {eventually} begin to sprout up out of the ground, He offers something new to us each day! Are you taking hold of it? Are you seeking Him about what He has for you today? I am so thankful that He is my portion. Without Him I would be completely empty.
