New Mercies

So, it's day 2 of 2014... How are you doing on your "New Year's Resolutions"? How's it going with your OneWord365?  Do you need a do-over already?

(I might)

The good news is His mercies are new Every Morning ... not just the first of the year!!

Because my word for the year... it's "Quiet" (and I have a blog post brewing about it)  and on January 1, I yelled at my kids, spent too much time on social media, and didn't even crack open my Bible.  Wasn't that a stellar start!?

"@parresia: Thankful that HIS mercies are new this morning, just like they were yesterday and will be tomorrow. God doesn't run on my calendar."

I tweeted this first thing in the morning, but I pondered it all day... especially right after I banned my girls to their bedroom because they were driving me crazy!!

So today, on yet another snow day, which has delayed this post from being finished and published, I will remember that His compassions fail not, His mercies are new every morning and He is always faithful... "therefore, I will hope in him."

Can I encourage you to remember that one day does not a person make. If you messed up already (and you will),  there is grace; and there are second and third chances... And together, God and I, God and you... we will make 2014 all it is meant to be. Because it's just a date on a calendar and God doesn't need a calendar (especially MY calendar).


  1. Aww love this,needed this reminder, I need do overs every second of the day! Yikes!!

  2. Great stuff, Julie! Lamentations 3 has always been one of my favorites and I find myself repeating it often- "yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope. Because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning." Praise God!

  3. Could you imagine if He were God we needed to please all day long. What a sad state we would all be in! Tomorrow's another day and's a new day :)!

  4. amen! great reminder... one i needed and never tire of hearing. :)

    happy new year!
