The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23 (NASB)

Yesterday I payed a visit to the local hardware store for a garden broom attachment, which connects the handle to the broom head. The green one is old and split. It reminded me of the famous sketch on “Only Fools and Horses” where Trigger receives an award for saving Peckham Council money, by having the same broom for twenty years. He proudly brags it has only had fourteen new handles and seventeen new heads, to his friends bemusement. This favourite sketch reminded me of todays chosen verses.

Old and New

As each day ends we thank our Father God for keeping us safe until bedtime, and the sun rises the next morning on a new day filled with His new blessings. The world may proclaim new this and new that, but the only thing that truly is new is God’s presence in our life. He sees, hears and feels all our aches and pains – covering them in His endless compassion. In His Fatherly care we see the perfect example of faithfulness in action, that we can follow in our faith walk.

Dear reader, in your walk with God focus on His many blessings – “They are new every morning.” Yesterday is past and it is a new day, you are still covered in His Compassion. Nothing is new in this world (Ecclesiastes 1:9 (NASB), but God’s blessings are new everyday.

    1. Thank you Andy. Maybe I could find other sketches for the blog…what spiritual lessons can be learned from Del Boy falling through the bar? God bless the BerryBunch today!

    1. How blessed we truly are Mandy, that He has each of our days planned and provided for ahead of us! Thankfully we don’t know what is ahead of us, but He does – Hallelujah.
      The picture comes from 30+ years ago when I was on spiritual retreat on the Holy Island recovering from a difficult time. It reminds me of this beautiful verse:
      Then they were glad because they were quiet,
      So He guided them to their desired haven.
      — Psalm 107:30
      May our Father God guide you today Mandy.
