New In The Morning

Lamentations 3:22-24

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
As I took my evening walk tonight, I turned to see my house as the sun  began to set. Peeking  through the trees was the sun that had warmed the earth all day, yet shadows of the approaching night began to lengthen across the yard. As the sun set tonight, the promise of a new sunrise could be seen in the beauty of the sunset. 

Our  week here at Hilltop seemed dark as we lost a cherished friend and much of the world continued in chaos. Yet, God promises in Lamentations that with every sunrise comes new blessings from our Lord. Just as our passage above says, God's faithfulness to His children is assured. Our hope through Jesus Christ is reality! And yes, even as the sun sets, we know with every new day that comes, the Lord God Almighty is indeed our portion.
