Lamentations 3:22-25 (ESV) – The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
It’s a new day. We woke up this morning and were given another opportunity to be better and stronger and to live in the abundance, And, even as we’ve grown accustomed to regarding each day we see as simply a continuation of the last, the grace, mercy, and promise of the Lord toward us is renewed with each new day we awake to. In this, we truly can live each day with the knowledge that we need not be held captive by what we were or did yesterday. To be certain, we have to deal with the consequences of past actions, but we do not have to carry any shame.
Today isn’t yesterday; it’s new. Be new.
