Some days it would be better if I just stayed in bed. When the alarm doesn’t alarm. The milk has gone bad. There’s no cream for the coffee. Homework is missing. And the new road construction project slows the commute to school drop off.
And that’s just the beginning. Those days when the crazy drivers either honk at you or raise up a righteous passion in you that others might describe as road rage. The days you can’t wait to end so you can start over tomorrow.
Sometimes it’s more than just a bad day that derails us. The days when a dreaded diagnosis comes. Jobs are lost. Marriages crumble. The days when it’s impossible to hope for a better tomorrow.
Thankfully, our better tomorrows are not dependent on our circumstances. According to the verse in Lamentations, no matter what happens, God’s great love and compassions never fail.
They are new every morning.
Remember this: Our hope rises out of remembering God’s great love.
While our circumstances may be unique, we have a common hope.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
If you need hope today, my prayer for you is that it will come from knowing that God’s compassions will never fail. Nothing can separate us from his love.
