I don’t know about you, but there are days of motherhood that I really think that I cannot go on.  That surely the Lord must have left me out to dry because I feel completely unable to go on, to do it right, to show love, to instruct, to care for everyone’s needs. These words from Lamentations 3 are often in the forefront of my mind and on the tip of my tongue….these are the promises that give me hope when I feel hopeless:

22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.

23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
