"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

His Word Friday


Friday Meme
There are some days that I just don't have much to say but after reading His Word I have plenty I want to share!  So this meme is for His World only.  On Fridays I will be sharing something I have read, a verse, passage, chapter, whatever it might be, that just speaks for itself, nothing more is needed...
If you would like to join in, feel free!!!
Button is on the right hand side!
 

Lamentations 3:22-41

22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.


23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.


24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”


25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.


26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.


27 It is good for a man to bear
The yoke in his youth.


28 Let him sit alone and keep silent,
Because God has laid it on him;


29 Let him put his mouth in the dust—
There may yet be hope.


30 Let him give his cheek to the one who strikes him,
And be full of reproach.


31 For the Lord will not cast off forever.


32 Though He causes grief,
Yet He will show compassion
According to the multitude of His mercies.


33 For He does not afflict willingly,
Nor grieve the children of men.


34 To crush under one’s feet
All the prisoners of the earth,


35 To turn aside the justice due a man
Before the face of the Most High,


36 Or subvert a man in his cause—
The Lord does not approve.


37 Who is he who speaks and it comes to pass,
When the Lord has not commanded it?


38 Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
That woe and well-being proceed?


39 Why should a living man complain,
A man for the punishment of his sins?


40 Let us search out and examine our ways,
And turn back to the Lord;


41 Let us lift our hearts and hands
To God in heaven.

Hi Nicole -

I love that Genesis 50:20...as well as the other rich passages in our Lord's Word!

Thank you for being strong in our Lord.

Note: I was inspired by what you wrote on John Savage's blog.
