The morning reminds me of the Lord's lovingkindness toward His people:
The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,And while most of us are not in a similar position as David might have been when composing Psalm 143, his trust and expectation that God would be gracious to him anew each day and throughout the day teaches us to view our God in the same way:
For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)
Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning;Let us, like Jeremiah, trust in God and praise Him for His faithfulness. Let us, like David, ask God each day to teach us the way in which we should walk. Let us turn to His Word early so as not to walk one step without feeding on His truth.
For I trust in You;
Teach me the way in which I should walk;
For to You I lift up my soul. (Psalm 143:8)

- This is a good article about how God doesn't typically use famous people to carry out His purposes; however, I must admit that I'm still trying to process the fact that a Christian teacher would be so ignorant of this truth and excitedly say to her young students,"What if Eminem got saved? Do you know how popular he is??? He would start rapping for Jesus and millions would be saved!" Sigh.
- Why corporate worship?
- Wow. Beautiful.
- Some thoughts to think before you post.
- Here is your weekly dose of adorable (thanks, Rick!).
- Um, is this guy serious, or is this a joke? (Please be a joke, please be a joke!)
- Hm. I'm still not sure I'm in agreement with this position on deaconesses.
- I'm pretty sure this is real, and that is terrifying.
