I'm grateful for........

God's Word.
This morning I woke up and literally said "Good Lord, I don't want to wake up and get out of bed". But I had to because I had to get Xav off to school. But it was cold in the house and I was lovely cozy in my bed.
But, I then opened my Bible to Lamentations 3. And the verses 22 and 23 said:
It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

I'm grateful that the Word of God is still relevant in my life today. It is still convicting. It is still written to ME!
That is also one of my favorite fall hymns.

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
