Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.

Lamentations 3:23 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/lam.3.23.NLT

This morning was a beautiful time with God. He met with me in the early morning hours around a warming fire and a cup of dark roast coffee. In prayer and reflection, God showed me His faithfulness in my life.

He led me to a view point where all I see is His faithfulness.

To be sure, there is much going on in life that I do not understand. Everything is not as I want it to be. There are unanswered prayer requests to challenging situations. My own mind and heart deal with a range of thoughts and emotions in navigating every day.

In a fresh way, today, God showed me of His great faithfulness in all of my life. He is challenging me to see life through the lens of His faithfulness to me.

When a relationship is under stress, God is at work, faithfully leading people to restoration. When plans are not working, God directs our steps. When resources are tight, God is supplying needs. When the spirit is discouraged, the Holy Spirit brings encouragement. When self-condemnation rages, Jesus reminds us that He does not condemn us, He saves and restores us.

All I see is the faithfulness of God.

Encouragement: Ask God to open your eyes and heart to see nothing but His faithfulness in your life. Ask Him to help you make sense of life by seeing your life today through the lens of His faithfulness.

Prayer: Dear Father God, what a gift You have given us today. To see our lives through the lens of Your faithfulness. To know that Your involvement in our lives is far deeper than our interpretation of what we see. You are faithful in our lives, even when we do not reciprocate. Thank You. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
