The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ~Lamentations 3:22-23
It is a new year! And if God’s mercies are new every morning, then surely they are new each year. What new mercies are you looking forward?
One of my spiritual practices is to prayerfully read through the Bible each year. It isn’t about comprehending every word; rather it’s about experiencing the new mercies of the Word who became flesh and dwells among us (John 1:14). It is about letting the steadfast love of the Lord be my portion daily.
Is there a spiritual practice God is inviting you to this day, this month, this year? If so, I encourage you to practice it with hope in the Lord’s great faithfulness. To that end, may may your soul and mine know the full extent of God’s new mercies in 2015!
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” ~Lamentations 3:24
