Yesterday and today I have felt like a failure in many ways. I feel the enemy’s strong pulls to discourage me, to have me throw in the towel and give up. Yet, I have hope. I have hope because I know my God is bigger. I know He is abounding in mercy and is long suffering. I know that nothing, not even the stubbornness and insufficiencies of me, is too big for Him. I choose hope and I will start right now, in the middle of the afternoon, afresh. I will continually hope.
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.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
~ Lamentations 3:22-24
