It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his
compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is they faithfulness.Lamentations 3: 22-23
The last couple of weeks at the Circle L have been really hectic. Basketball
camp, show camps, ranch rodeos, ranch practicum, birthday parties, brandings, working with the 4-H steers,
meetings and everyday chores at the ranch; we have been running our legs
off. It is easy to forget that we need to keep in touch with the one above us.So I have made a point that each
morning to think about all the good things that have happened to us. I have
been discarding discouragement, guilt, and condemnation.
I have been trying a new attitude, It's a new day and I'm not going to
drag the hurts of yesterday into this new day. I'm going to start fresh.
We heard at church yesterday about asking God to forgive us for opportunities that we missed because we were to busy.
We know that God's mercies are new each morning. I know that I have made a
lot of mistakes, but God has not run out of mercy. God renews his mercy each
morning. He knew that we were going to use up all his mercy that he made
yesterday. I am thankful that God forgives us and that we don't have to carry
around. I simply need to receive God's mercy and forgiveness.
