"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness."
I am so tired. Not the "I just need a nap" tired. Not even the "I need to go to bed early" kind of tired either. I am "I have been emotionally engaged in helping my kids transition to a new place and all the while transitioning myself" kind of tired.
And when Momma gets weary, Momma gets cranky. And impatient. And sharp-tongued.
Then I read Lamentations 3.
Steadfast love. I chew on that for a bit. And I am immediately grateful for a Father who's love for his children never gets tired. Or cranky.
Merciful. Patient. Kind. Though I grow weary loving my children, my husband the way they need/long to be loved, He never falters. His love is perfect. And perfectly faithful. I hope He is making me a little more like Himself. In the meantime I will embrace my limits and be grateful He has none.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.” (vs 24)
