Lamentations 3-5, 2 Peter 3
25The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.
26It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.
18But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
I’m so thankful that the Bible plan has us read passages we may not choose on our own. Lamentations 3 is such an example for how to suffer well. Recognize God’s sovereignty over all affairs, cry out to Him and trust in Him, remind yourself that He is full of steadfast love and abundant in mercy every morning.
55“I called on your name, O Lord,
from the depths of the pit;
56you heard my plea, ‘Do not close
your ear to my cry for help!’
57You came near when I called on you;
you said, ‘Do not fear!’
21But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
22The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
23they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”
Lamentations 3:21 “Yet this I️ call to mind and therefore I️ have hope” is such a beautiful, simple little reminder
Amen SarahMay! Amen.
