Lamentations 3:22-23
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
His mercies never come to an end;
They are new every morning;
Great is your faithfulness.

This verse has truly been my anchor this week.

The last few days have been filled with exhaustion, frustrations, set-backs in my workouts, a diagnosis of patellofemoral arthritis in both knees, and a roller coaster of emotion and anxiety surrounding all of the above.

But...as consumed as I have been with my circumstances this week, through a last minute invitation to a worship night and  very last minute decision to attend, God was so faithful to meet me and refocus my gaze.

It's so easy to skim over this passage and not think anything about it...but no matter what you're dealing with...please hold the truth contained in these verses near and dear to your heart. God's mercies ARE new every morning...his grace IS sufficient for every moment...and he IS faithful in every circumstance. It doesn't mean life will be easy or everything will magically get better in an instant...but He will be there through every high and every low and he will provide for you in every situation.

I am so grateful for dear friends who believe in the power of prayer and so grateful for a God who speaks to us, who heals, and who is patient despite our constant failures.
