My soul is bereft of peace; I have forgotten what happiness is;
The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
For the Lord will not cast off forever,
Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the Lord has commanded it?
I called on your name, O LORD, from the depths of the pit;
You have taken up my cause, O Lord; you have redeemed my life.
Lamentations 3:17-26, 31-33, 37-38, 55-58 (ESV)
Let us pray…
Most High, You bid us in Your Word to wait on You. As the days turn into weeks, the weeks into months, and the months into years, remind us that Your mercies are new every morning. Assure us of your abundant, steadfast love to us in Jesus, that we might rejoice in the waiting, knowing You to be our Portion, our Hope, and our Redeemer forever, no matter what it is You may speak to come to pass. In Jesus' name. Amen.
