“Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed. For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness!” Lamentations 3:22-23

Life’s struggles can consume us when we focus on them. The challenges we face are real as is the suffering that often accompanies them, but we have a choice to turn our thoughts away from the problems that overwhelm us, toward the love of God. His love never fails. His acts of compassion in our lives can rejuvenate our joy every morning when we awake. His faithfulness knows no bounds.

Father,

I choose to be consumed by You today, not the challenges that I’m facing. I choose to fix my thoughts on You and on what is true and lovely and worthy of praise. You are all those things, and your compassion is working in my life today, bringing about miracles that my worrying and fretting can never accomplish. I will be full of faith today, believing that you are faithful to me in every area of my life as your Word says you are. I will praise you today in advance for delivering me from being overwhelmed by trouble, grief, sorrow, regret, loneliness, despair, defeat, or anything the devil tries to throw at me.

In Jesus’ Name Amen
