Today is a new day.
Lamentations 3:22-23 declares, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness". (ESV)
Each morning we are greeted with His faithfulness and mercy. Sammy* needed be convinced of God's faithfulness and mercy and He used us and a pregnancy test to reassure her.
Sammy had recently been baptized, but was questioning God. This lead to a wonderful conversation about God’s plan for her life, His best plan for her relational health, stress, anxiety and some unhealthy habits in her life.
As she waited for the results of her pregnancy test she was anxious and cried about the possibility of being pregnant. When the test result was negative, she saw it as “wake up call”.
When Sammy expressed a desire to make a change in her life, we cheered her on and prayed with her. Before leaving, Sammy asked for a hug and left knowing His faithfulness and experiencing His mercy.
Every life is worth it!
That’s our Why!
