Mercies

Sitting in my first classes is reminding me of why I'm here: to get to learn from professors who love the Lord, His Word, and their students; to know God better.

I am still feeling a little overwhelmed by every syllabus, assignments already due, and figuring out schedules. It's all intimidating. I will admit that I get a little scared when I see a 10 page paper due during the semester, a stack of books to be read (they're great books though!), or quizzes for every class.


But isn't that all why I'm here? To learn, to grow, to be challenged. To do those things, even when they are hard? Yes.

My verse for this month is Lamentations 3:21-23:

Yet I still dare to hope
when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.


Ironically, this is the same exact passage my mom posted on her blog today. Seems like a reoccurring theme, huh? I think about it every time I start getting twinges of worry, or fear.

His mercies are new every morning. Oh, how comforting those words are to me!

I don't have to be afraid of what's to come, because God will provide me with what I need for this day. He won't provide a box full for the next 4 months. He will give me a new box full of mercy every day. That box is full, because his mercies never cease.

As I learn about the Bible here at Moody, I can't forget that I actually know the God of the Bible. He knows me. I'm learning for Him, from Him, and to serve Him better. That's why I'm here.
