"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. i say to myself, 'the LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.'
The LORD is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD" ~lamentations 3:21-26

lots of stuff has happened over the last week or so and i have been so thankful to witness the faithfulness of the Lord. i think sometimes it's easy to become immune to the phrases, "... the Lord's compassions never fail...great is Your faithfulness" because we say them so often to people who are facing difficulty, trials, or frustrations...it's almost like a common response. but, what i love is that the fact that when the Creator of the Universe renews His compassions and mercies to us daily AND is unwavering in His faithfulness, it rocks your world. when you come face to face with His faithfulness and understand that it is only by mercy that you have made it this far, it turns your world upside. today i am overwhelmed by my inadequacy in so many things but at the same time, also overwhelmed by the Lord's great love, compassion, mercy, and faithfulness. my prayer is that His faithfulness never become common place to me but that it rocks my world EVERY day. He is good, so very good.
