Many times I have failed as a person, I have let people down. I have put my trust in other people only to have them fail me. I know with God all things are possible but with man he can fail. God please forgive me when I put more trust in man than in you. God I know you will never fail me or turn your back on me.

Psalm 118:8
It is better to take refuge
in the Lord than to

trust in man.

Whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting
—Micah 5:2​

The Lord Jesus had goings forth for His people as their Representative before the throne, long before they appeared upon the stage of time. It was "from everlasting" that He signed the compact with His Father, that He would pay blood for blood, suffering for suffering, agony for agony, and death for death, in the behalf of His people; it was "from everlasting" that He gave Himself up without a murmuring word. That from the crown of His head to the sole of His foot He might sweat great drops of blood, that He might be spit upon, pierced, mocked, rent asunder, and crushed beneath the pains of death. His goings forth as our Surety were from everlasting.

Pause, my soul, and wonder! Thou hast goings forth in the person of Jesus "from everlasting." Not only when thou wast born into the world did Christ love thee, but His delights were with the sons of men before there were any sons of men. Often did He think of them; from everlasting to everlasting He had set His affection upon them.

What! my soul, has He been so long about thy salvation, and will not He accomplish it? Has he from everlasting been going forth to save me, and will he lose me now? What! Has He carried me in His hand, as His precious jewel, and will He now let me slip from between his fingers? Did He choose me before the mountains were brought forth, or the channels of the deep were digged, and will He reject me now?

Impossible!

I am sure He would not have loved me so long if He had not been a changeless Lover. If He could grow weary of me, He would have been tired of me long before now. If He had not loved me with a love as deep as Hell, and as strong as death, He would have turned from me long ago.

Oh, joy above all joys, to know that I am His everlasting and inalienable inheritance, given to Him by his Father or ever the earth was!

Everlasting love shall be the pillow for my head this night :) ~Spurgeon, Charles H, Morning and Evening

~Deut


You are loved with an everlasting love, that's what the Bible
says, and underneath are the everlasting arms.

Thus says the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from the LORD (Jeremiah 17:5).

With each new morning comes brand new mercies.

With each new morning comes brand new mercies.
Thank you for reminding me of one of my very favorite passages about our wonderful, loving Father :)

.........Lamentations 3
.........22 The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
.........For His compassions never fail.
.........23 They are new every morning;

.........Great is Thy faithfulness.

~Deut
p.s. - I love this one too :)

.........Psalm 103
.........1 BLESS the LORD, O my soul;
.........And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
.........2 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
.........And forget none of His benefits;
.........3 Who pardons all your iniquities;
.........Who heals all your diseases;
.........4 Who redeems your life from the pit;
......... Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
.........5 Who satisfies your years with good things,
.........So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
.........6 The LORD performs righteous deeds,
.........And judgments for all who are oppressed.
.........7 He made known His ways to Moses,
.........His acts to the sons of Israel.
.........8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
.........Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
.........9 He will not always strive with us;
.........Nor will He keep His anger forever.
.........10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
.........Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
.........11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
.........So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
.........12 As far as the east is from the west,
.........So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
.........13 Just as a father has compassion on his children,
.........So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
.........14 For He Himself knows our frame;

.........He is mindful that we are but dust.
