Yesterday we had so much fun, the joy that children bring. To have the laughter never end, In songs we love to sing.
Days cut short, I wanted longer; So much joy yet to sow. Sadly time consumes the love we share— I turn older as they grow.
At the end of day I can’t keep up, My strength a fading sorrow. But my hope is in Jesus Christ. Who makes yesterday a foretaste of tomorrow.
In Jesus we have a sure hope that our tomorrows will be even better than our yesterdays.
We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone. Psalm 33:20-22
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” 1 Corinthians 2:9
My voice is not too faint, My prayer not too small. My God bends down to listen, and grants me mercy when I call.
I love the LORD because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! Death wrapped its ropes around me; the terrors of the grave overtook me. I saw only trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the LORD: “Please, LORD, save me!” How kind the LORD is! How good he is! So merciful, this God of ours! The LORD protects those of childlike faith; I was facing death, and he saved me. Let my soul be at rest again, for the LORD has been good to me. He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. And so I walk in the LORD’s presence as I live here on earth! Psalm 116:1-9 NLT
Give thanks to the LORD for He is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1
His goodness plots the course of the sun and clouds to create a beautiful scenes. Though the beauty of the moment is fleeting His goodness and love are everlasting. Thank God His love is not limited by my ability to put it into words, or take a photograph.
It is greater than my imagination. It is not measured by what I deserve. It does not stop when I wander off, but seeks me out and brings me back. I cannot diminish it, but I can increase it by receiving His love and giving it away. It surrounds me like a shield, and guides me on the right path. God’s love gives me freedom to be all that He created me to be. His love washes over me and will never leave nor forsake me. I don’t have to worry about tomorrow, because God’s love and mercy are new every morning.
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
