The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. -Lamentations 3:22-24

Even before you opened your eyes, God’s mercies were new. There is nothing you can accomplish today to make you any more precious in His sight. Let that sink in for a moment.

Instead of living as if you have something to prove, rest in the knowledge that you already are living proof of your Heavenly Father’s great love and your Savior’s great sacrifice. And no matter what this day or this life may throw your way, you can confidently wait on the Lord.

Because “my flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” (Psalm 73:26).

Each day new- now through forever, sisters. You are beloved and you are held. May you hope in Him alone.
