If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

New Every Morning

Sunday morning hubby and I were sitting on the balcony watch the ocean, as we've been doing most mornings.  I asked him the question, "If you were asked right now to speak to a group of people (remember, he's a pastor) and were given just a couple of minutes, what would you speak on?  He said he would use Genesis and speak about creation.  Good choice.  I told him the scripture that comes to my mind is the one that says something along the line of His mercies are new every morning.  We've been talking about that off and on the last couple of days.


The actual scripture is:
Lamentations 3:22-23
"The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;his mercies begin afresh each morning."

I was thinking how the tide comes in and washes away all the foot prints and others things in the sand and it starts out all fresh again.  Just like God's mercy does for us. 

We have slips of the tongue, angry moments, etc each day.  But because of God's mercy, he wipes the slate clean each day, if we ask.  We can then start out each new day fresh and clean.  Just like the sand when the tide goes back out.

Tracy mentioned that the waves are like His love.  They never stop.  They just keep on, keeping on.  Exactly like God's love.  It never stops either.

So take hope my friends.  Jesus' love and mercy never ends.  He will love us always.
