In a recent post about holding to hope, I referenced my attempts to memorize Lamentations 3:21-42, and today I have included the passage for you all. I cannot tell you the number times I have recited it to myself in the last few weeks, in part or in full, and how often its truth has provided relief, peace, and focus. The passage is truly wonderful, but I need not speak for it. Read below and you will see what I mean:
I love that the passage is divided into easily-memorable segments the "to" portion, the question portion, and the "let him" portion among others--all allow for digestible chunks on which to muse from day-to-day or week-to-week, slowly embedding the truth into one's heart and mind so that when the time comes--and it will come--when you are tired or angry or over-whelmed, you will remember "Great is thy Faithfulness. 'The Lord is my portion,'"
May we always seek to recall it during this season. Thanks for reading,
