New Every Morning

Good Evening, God

When I feel down or discouraged . . . imagining some dire future . . . I console myself by remembering the story of Joseph in the Old Testament. If ever a person suffered at the hands of others, it was Joseph. Sold into slavery by his brothers, falsely accused of sexual attack, put in prison . . . the story goes on. Yet, You used him, God, to save many thousands from starvation — including his own family.

When he reveals himself to his brothers, he is able to say, “You meant it for evil. God meant it for good.” Genesis 50:20.

My perspective is very narrow . . .even going back in history as best I can . . . I cannot even begin to know the multiple layers that comprise reality. But, I keep forgetting that. Indeed, it came to me recently that I had our human problem backward. I used to think that the trouble was that we were only Slow Learners, or Non Learners. Now I know, for myself at least, that my problem is that I am a FAST FORGETTER. How many times do I relearn the same basic truth? Too many to remember!

So, I take great comfort in the verses in Lamentations 3:22-23 that talk about Your great love . . . that Your mercies never fail. Indeed, Your mercies are new every morning. Thank YOU!

Story teller,
