Morning mercies

The view out my window this morning


You have moved my soul far from peace; 
I have forgotten prosperity. 
And I said, “My strength and my hope 
Have perished from the LORD.”         
Remember my affliction and roaming, 
The wormwood and the gall. 


My soul still remembers
And sinks within me.


This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
 

They are new every morning;
 

Great is Your faithfulness.
“ The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
“ Therefore I hope in Him!”

Lamentations 3:17-24
