New every morning

Lamentation 3: 22 – 23
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.
Each day has its own challenges and we don’t always know how to deal with them.  I believe these challenges are to help each of us grow and draw us closer to the Lord.  The Lord has been so gracious and provided something good in my life.  My latest challenge is to get along with new people of different cultures and they don’t always understand me or I them.
I thank the Lord God for His great love that is not consuming and His compassion that never fails.  I also thank the Lord God for them new every morning; great is my Lord’s faithfulness.  I want to make it my goal in life going forward to grow old gracefully, to be kind and show compassion.  I want to be able to listen to people and not interrupt them.  I want to be able to speak to them without accusing them.  I want to be able to give without being stingy.  It is my desire to pray without ceasing for each of the people I love and care for and also for those I don’t know.  I want to be able to answer without starting an argument.  I want to share without pretending and enjoy without complaining.  It is my desire to trust without wavering and forgive without seeking punishment.  Make promises without forgetting.  In doing all of these things I want to glorify my Lord Jesus and take Him as my clothing.
As it says in Romans 13: 14 ‘clothe yourself with the LORD Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and make no provision for {indulging} the flesh [put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your physical nature].
In doing all of this I want to be content with whatever the circumstances are in my life.  I am turning all my desires and cares over into the Lords Hands.  God knows my desires, and the Lord knows what is best for me.   I am choosing to trust in Him and in God’s timing.
In so doing I want to ask the Lord to let me live a bold and confident and overcoming life.  As I am the righteousness of God in Christ as 2 Corinthians 1:9 puts it ‘but this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God. 
The Lord God promised in Jeremiah 29: 11 ‘For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD.  They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Why would God state this in the Bible if that wasn’t the case?  I believe God wants me to prosper.  Praise the Lord for being kind, loving and caring.  Praise the Lord for looking out for each one of us and helping me grow old gracefully with dignity and understanding.  I am being transformed into Jesus Christ’s image through the Word of God.

Acts 2:38-40 (ICB)38 Peter said to them, “Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.”40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
