Fresh Mercies

“Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, ‘The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!’ The LORD is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for the salvation from the LORD….For no one is abandoned by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he also shows compassion because of the greatness of his unfailing love.” Lamentations 3:21-26, 31-32

Today I saw God’s mercy, compassion, faithfulness and unfailing love.

As many of you know, my family has had a long six months. My dad was hospitalized on March 3rd after an error was made by the hospital where he had been admitted for day surgery. The journey continues on and the way has been rough and hard.

Today my mom, sister and I met with hospital staff. We didn’t call the meeting. They did. They wanted to hear our journey. For the first time in six months, someone listened. Not only did they listen, but they took ownership and responsibility for the mistakes that were made. They admitted error and negligence on their part. They humbly apologized for all that has happened. They have asked what they can do to assist better in dad’s care.

The Chief Nursing Executive and VP Professional Affairs, along with the Chief of Doctors and Physicians considered us. As we waited quietly on the Lord through all this time, today we saw again that He has not abandoned us.

Father thank You. Thank You for mercies that begin afresh each morning. Though my heart is still drowned in grief, I have tasted Your unfailing love.
