His Mercies Are New Every Morning




Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassion's never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. I say to myself "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." {Lamentations 3:22-24}

Jesus draws me closer to Him, He sees what I don't about myself. My name is written on His hands, He knows me!  
Knowing this I feel loved and safe with Him.

When I feel small and like the words don't matter He reminds me that they do and I keep going.  

When I feel like nothing good can come from me. The words, emotions, energy just isn't there I seek His face and I'm renewed.  There are some days I don't want what He is offering, I let my feelings boss me around and run the day.

But when I do::

He offers me grace that I can turn around and give to others
Forgiveness that can be extended not in my strength but His
Peace to cover the craziness of it all

His word promises that His mercies are new each day all I have to do is come to Him; he's waiting. Some days there are no words, my soul feels empty and I close my eyes and pretend I'm sitting at His feet in His presence. A sweetness fills my soul, a settling.  It's here I let Him wash over me and give me strength. 

He's always there.... waiting

Willing to give to me what I need 








I have to be willing to seek Him.
I have to take the time out of my busy day to accept His rest.
For me it means getting up early, sacrificing sleep, getting up before everyone else. To set my mind and heart right before the day gets started.
For you it might be at the end of the day or lunch







Whenever it is I pray you do it.

When You don't know what to say, ask the Holy Spirit to speak for you.

Close your eyes and just be still...

He's waiting!

  1. Hi Alecia,
    I wake up really early, 3 or 4am, to pray. I read the Bible, a meditation guide, then I draw what I want to remember. The thing is I've had prayer journals ever since I was young, but I never remembered what i prayed about! So in 2006, I decided to change the way I pray. Now that my journal has drawings, the Word of God has really embedded itself in my heart and I can see the fruit of joy and peace as an every day thing for me! In spite of the challenges I've been facing with my health! Patsy from

  2. What a great idea.I've never thought to add drawings to my journal, this would be good for my daughter as well bc she loves to draw and this could benefit her when she writes in her journal. Thanks for sharing your idea Patsy! I love it.
