A Faithfulness Verse

This event is hosted by Cindy at I Owe It All to Him. Please visit and check out others favorite verses. It was difficult to pick a verse. Or even a set of verses.

I chose Lamentations 3:22-23. I turn to this chapter many days. See two verses! It contains the title of one of my favorite classic hymns.




22.Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,

for his compasssions never fail.

23.They are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness.


I am in need of His never failing compassion. My faith, at intervals, could not be found on the surface of a mustard seed. I do not think Horton could hear it if it were a tiny Who. But His faith is great when mine is not to be found anywhere. This gives me no end of comfort. I can hear the old hymn now.
