I am writing this on Tuesday the 11th. Last night I could not sleep at all and I stayed up writing my dose for this morning. Two words kept running around in my head. Loss and Vengeance. I wrote this morning’s dose at around midnight last night and stayed up much later looking for passages around these words. I just had a feeling this morning and last night. Here is the Dose on Vengeance that was on my heart last night. It makes sense to me now in the light of our Nation’s tragedy.
God save and keep the USA
Lamentations 3:14, 17-23
I became the laughingstock of all my people; they mock me in song all day long I have been deprived of peace; I have forgotten what prosperity is. So I say, “My splendor is gone and all that I had hoped from the LORD.” I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 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.
May God help us all to avoid bitterness and seek out the opportunities to share the hope of Christ with those around us in these troubling days.
I am thankful for you all.
