” It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”(Lamentaions 3:22-23 KJV)
I am thankful for the Lord’s new mercies every morning, especially this morning.
I drove out of my driveway and stopped at the stop sign on our street before getting ready to turn; I was transporting my daughter to her day program, Solid Rock.
I looked both ways and then looked left again. The traffic was clear. But, the sign on the left corner, “Calvary Bible Holiness Church”, blocked part of my view and I decided to pull up a little to have a complete look. I did not have to do that, I was in the proper place just behind the stop sign, however, I felt I needed to.
I am thankful for God’s faithfulness and that his mercies are new every morning, and his mercies were apparent to me especially this morning.
I slowly pulled forward a ways, then, a motorcycle went by. It must have been a Honda or Yamaha, it was quiet. I didn’t hear it coming, nor did I see the motorcyle before I pulled forward to get a better look.
Whew! I know it was God who kept us safe as well as the man on the motorcycle.
As a thought about his mercies and began to write this blog, I wondered if there were any incidences in my life spiritually, that requires a closer look, some extra caution to avoid a crash of conflict.
I thought about the tendencies that I have in regards to sensitivities to being the hurt by others and how I collide with the turmoil until I work it out in prayer and can get back on track in my walk with Christ.
I would be consumed by them, if not for his compassion
So help me, God, to be careful in both the physical and spiritual realms.
Do you have a praise for the Lord today about his new mercies to you?
