Daily in Your Presence - Jan. 6

Day 6

COMPASSION
 

His compassions never fail.

They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, are you struggling with failure? My compassion has no end. While I will not compromise My plan for obedience, I am not deaf to your cries for help. What you see as the point of no return, I see as the possibility of a new beginning. I have no desire to destroy you or My dreams for you. Like a father loves his child, I, too, love you. Rest in Me daily, and let Me demonstrate My love and compassion to you.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
No matter what I did yesterday, You stand before me each new morning with outstretched arms, inviting me to start over. You see me not as I was, but as I am becoming. Your compassion overwhelms me and draws me even closer to You, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

God's plan is never destruction, only restoration.
