Present & Pleased Devotional DAY THIRTYTHREE

Lamentations 3:22-23 "The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning."

Ever messed up? I have. Ever found yourself in need of a fresh start? Ditto. That’s one of the amazing things about the Bible, it tells story after story of people we can all identify with.

Just like Paul, all too many times the very things I shouldn’t do, I end up doing. Like Jonah, my heart has been known to run from the Almighty only to end up gasping for breath in a raging sea of my own failure. And when it seems like drowning is inevitable, there it is…like that crazy big fish, here comes a beautiful, brand new day with life-giving mercy to save us!

2 Timothy 2:13 says even when we are unfaithful, He remains faithful because He cannot deny who He is.

How awesome is that?! No matter who you’ve been or what you’ve done, lift up your head! God knows you and He loves you. Yesterday is done and gone, defeated by His amazing grace!

Take a deep breath. Start fresh. It’s a NEW DAY!

AND don't forget CELEBRATION OF MINISTRY for Jamie and Tammy tonight at 6pm in the Worship Center & The Center. Let’s reflect, express our thanks, and most of all celebrate together.
