Lamentations 3:21-23 (NLT)

21 Yet I still dare to hope

    when I remember this:

22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends![a]

    His mercies never cease.

23 Great is his faithfulness;

    his mercies begin afresh each morning.


  1. 3:22 As in Syriac version; Hebrew reads of the Lord keeps us from destruction.

When I look back at my life and see your guidance, step by step, I am thankful for the “shepherd’s crook” you used on me to extract me from difficult situations.   Your hand of discipline has been evident.  Thank you!

Lord, give me the time today to make an inventory of the mercies you have extended to me!  This will remind me of your continual love for me and place in me an attitude of gratitude.
