God's Mercies

Today's Scripture Ps.89:1

I will sing of the mercies of the LORD forever;
With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.

As we travel through this homeschooling journey, it is easy to become so busy and so stressed out that we might fail so see God's mercies and faithfulness being demonstrated on our behalf everyday. I want to encourage all the moms out there to take some time and pause to reflect on how merciful God has been to you and your family. In Lamentations 3:22-23 we learn that it is

Through the LORD's mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

Think about that! It is because of God's mercies and His faithful nature that we have not been run over and under by life. God is a faithful God and His mercies are new every morning. That means, every morning, He puts things, people and circumstances in place to help bear our burden and draw us closer to Him. There are times when it does not seem that way, but that is the truth.

Take time like the Psalmist to reflect on God's mercies today and all the ways He has been faithful to you even when you did not deserve it and it will definitely surprise you what the Lord has done.

Have a blessed day!
