Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting You are God. Psalm 90:1-2
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. Lamentations 3:19-23
We finally made it to the beach this summer! Dave loves the heat and the ocean water. I love to sit with my ankles in the water while reading a good book. I made good use of my beach time to begin a book written by Anne Graham Lotz called The Daniel Prayer. Before long I was over 100 pages in. But I had to stop and reflect on her words:
“What experiences have you had of God’s faithfulness? Have you been so focused on the tragedies or the troubles, the struggles or the setbacks, the poor health or the broken home, the divorce or the disease, that you have lost sight of God’s faithfulness to be right there with you, then bring you through? “
I had to admit and confess that I have been forgetting God’s faithfulness as of late. As I sat on the beach it brought to my remembrance the many times God has been faithful to me. Like the sand on the beach, the times I could recount God’s faithfulness were too many to count.
How quickly we forget. Has God been faithful to you? Remember and try to count. You will be blessed because God has been faithful!
