Sunday in the Word: His Mercy Endures Forever

I recently read through the Psalms as part of my daily devotions.  As I was nearing the end of the book, I came to Psalm 136.  It was such a blessing and it took me back more than 20 years ago when this passage came to me at a very vulnerable time.  Shortly after  finding out that I was pregnant with our second child, I began having signs that I was having a miscarriage.  Losing that precious baby was difficult, but my God was bigger.  He had just the words for me when I needed them the most: "His mercy endures forever".  No matter what, He is bigger than my problems.  He is bigger than my pain and His mercy endures forever.

Do I sometimes wonder what my life would be like if that baby had been born?  Sometimes, but not often.  I know that I will see that precious one someday. In my heart she was a girl we have named Brittany.  His mercy has endured and will continue to do so.  Since I that day so long ago, I have specifically sought out this passage to bask in God's promises to me.  How about you?  Is there a specific place in God's Word where you seek solace?  If not, seek God's face and find it.

This layout was quite simple actually.  I pulled an old Stamp of the Month set from Close To My Heart, a pewter ink pad, some colored pictures and went to work.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
