But LORD...

"But LORD, you remain the same forever!" Lamentations 5:19

This morning phrases from Lamentations echo my heart cries.

"...we are exhausted but are given no rest." 5:5

"Joy has left our hearts..." 5:15

"Our hearts are sick and weary, and our eyes grow dim with tears." 5:17

Circumstances and situations are tearing my heart apart.

I am falling into God's arms and placing the names of loved ones in His hands.

Yet, despite the evil I see there is a "But LORD..."

Father, thank You that you remain the same forever.

What does that mean to me?

That means You see...You know...You understand...You are working...You can be trusted...You are just...You do care...You will not abandon us...You are able...You are holding us...You love us with unfailing love.

Thank You today for a sentence that brings hope and begins with the promise of a 'but', followed by the power of Your Name.

Just to think that God is working in you and at the same time in me... and all of His children. All at the same time. Our God is so big and powerful.!

Thanks girl for always being real!

Praise you LORD because only in You can we find hope in the midst of our heartbreak. You always remain faithful to those who put their hope in you, to those who seek you , and to those who patiently wait for You. Your hope and compassion never fail.

Prayer's and hugs dear Joy! Lori - AZ
