The Sun Came Up This Morning

My family and I are enjoying a few days on vacation in Cape Canaveral, Florida.  One of the things we have attempted to do is to get up every morning to watch the sunrise.

As we approached the beach this morning, I heard  a lady say, “Regardless of what happens today, the sun came up!”  As I reflected on that the following verses came to mind:

And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the Lord: Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 22 It is of the Lord’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.   Lamentations 3:18-26

Regardless what happens in your life today, remember that the sun came up and with it, God’s wonderful mercy!
