I read this in Lamentations the other morning, “Everything I had hoped for from the Lord is lost!” (3:18) Have you every felt like the writer of these heart-wrenching words?
On more than one occasion I’ve uttered something similar. After a few hopeless seasons, I realized I felt like my hope was gone because I was putting my hope in things that fade, fail, change, or end.
The writer of Lamentations later reminds himself of a few things worthy of hope… things that will never what doesn’t fade, fail, change, or end.
• His faithful love
• His new mercies
• His faithfulness
Let’s comfort ourselves with His hope today.
