Do not hide Your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit. Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love. Psalm 143:7-8
I hear God’s unfailing love in the singing of His birds. I see Your unfailing love in the sunrise above the mountains. I smell Your unfailing love in the scent of the pines and flowers. I know Your unfailing love in the promise that Your Spirit is always with me, and will guide me home to be with You.
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
I have a little secret, whispering somewhere behind a door. I try to keep it quiet, Though the silence makes it roar. I have a hidden shame, I keep it sealed away. But the moment I relax, it creeps out to wreck my day. I have a vile rodent scurrying somewhere in the wall. I set out traps to catch it, but the sly critter avoids them all. I think tomorrow will be better, I’ll finally get control. Then I wake up to find, They’ve chewed another hole. O Lord tear down this old house. My life to You I bring. Please build in me Your temple, fit for You my Lord and King.
Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Selah (a pause for praise, worship and reflection) For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. Psalm 61:1-5
The dawn speaks of God’s promise for a new day. The birds rejoice with songs I long to sing. The trees form stained glass windows to behold heaven’s beauty. All nature hints of God’s glory for those who wait and earnestly seek Him.
For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him! Isaiah 64:4
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. Psalm 105:3
Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say this— Psalm 107:1.
When you stumble and fall—give thanks for His unfailing love and ask for help.
When you are ashamed by your lack of self-control—give thanks for His unfailing love and ask for strength.
When your health fails—give thanks for His unfailing love and ask for healing.
Remember the Lord’s love has triumphed over the grave. He’s risen; our hope is in Him and His unfailing love.
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set His seal of ownership upon us, and put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22
