Lamentations 3: 19-24
Remember my affliction and my wandering, the wormwood and bitterness.
Surely my soul remembers
And is bowed down within me.
This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I have hope in Him.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please keep your hope alive in us during these dark times. Please help us to remain strong in that hope despite the fact that we can’t see the end of this and that we will probably have to endure a lot more pain before it’s over. Thank you so much for each new day that you give to us and for your never-failing love.
In the name of Jesus, Amen.
What does Jeremiah mean when he says “the Lord is my portion”? How did his hope in God sustain him through the challenging experience he was going through? How can we learn to cling to God both in the more obviously painful moments, and in the monotonous times when we are stuck waiting for our situation to change?
