Great Is Thy Faithfulness


“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

This morning as I was driving to work, feeling a little gloomy because I was tired and just a little discouraged in my spirit, I saw the rays of sun shining through the clouds and I was almost moved to tears. It really felt as if God was shining his mercies down on me. I was reminded that as the verse above says, God’s compassions are new every morning; and that God is faithful to us- even when we aren’t as faithful to Him as we should be.

Whatever your situation might be, be encouraged and know that God has not forgotten and that He is faithful. He ALWAYS keeps his promises, and I can truly testify to that.

Be encouraged! Peace and Blessings!

“Yes, God is real; real in my soul. Yes, God is real; for He has washed and made me whole. His love for me is like pure gold. Yes, God is real for I can feel him in my soul.”

  1. Hi Erin,
    This is an awesome post!! Thanks so much for your kind words- I’m sure my blog will be “interesting” to say the least. I really enjoy reading your quotes- Do you have India Arie’s newest album? This quote is from her song “private party” and your post made me think of it.

    ” Sometimes I’m alone but never lonely
    That’s what I’ve come to realize
    I’ve learned to love the quiet moments
    The Sunday mornings of life
    Where I can reach deep down inside
    Or out into the universe
    I can laugh until I cry
    Or I can cry away the hurt”

    Stay Blessed,

  2. Speaking of India’s new CD, Erin, I think you’ll like the bonus track. It makes me think of you.

  3. So y’all have inspired me to check out India’s latest CD. I have the first two, but hearing good music in Athens is like trying to enroll in AFAM 40 your first year…if you know what I mean. I’ll check it out, though…
