We Are Not Consumed {Something to Think About}

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."

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him. 
Lamentations 3:22-25 NIV


Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed…
by guilt
grief
temptation
anger
sadness

What in your life have you not been consumed by because of the Lord’s love, compassion, and mercy?

In Christ,
Laura

  2. The list could be many Laura! This is such a beautiful text (and photo) and love how you refer it to the many things which could consume us if it wasn't for Jesus. Another beautiful post.

  7. I copied out these verses recently into my journal on a day that I needed them most. I love those verses as well as the song, "Great is Thy Faithfulness."

    Pamela, what is your pain...physical or other? I read this post and your comment yesterday on my phone and I just wished I could give you a hug.

    1. Amen Barbie! When I read "Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed..." recently it struck me in a way that I never felt before. I love how God speaks to us that way!
