July 23 Anecdote for a Monday Morning

Anecdote for Monday Mornings, or just thoughts when things might seem overwhelming or bleak.

     “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” (Lamentations 3:22-23).  This was my mom’s favorite verse, and I’ve claimed it for many years – still good for things in our lives today. This would make a great Monday morning verse, or morning verse for any mourning.

     On days when grief or pain has been a tremendous weight upon my shoulders, I have discovered yet another place of refuge for my heart. “My God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we ask or THINK, according to His riches in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 3:20).  In an ever changing economy, that’s a verse to take to the bank!

     And I just love this one out of the heart cry of David the Psalmist; “He heals the broken in heart; and binds up their wounds.  He tells the number of the stars; He calls them by their names.  Great is our Lord, and of great power; His understanding is infinite” (Psalm 147: 3-5).  In the evening when I stand outside my camper, I am able to gaze into the heavens and see the stars spread out across a velvety, navy-blue sky.  The knowledge that I am looking into the heavens just as David did so long ago, brings me a sense of comfort, protection, peace, and praise. Great stuff, huh.  The kind of stuff to make you catch a falling star and put it in your pocket.

         Here’s to a terrific Monday – everyday of the week.
