Seeing With Our Father's Eyes


Louise F. Tarkington authored the poem entitled as above. The first stanza goes like this: “I wish that there were some wonderful place in the Land of Beginning Again, where all our mistakes and all our heartaches and all of our poor selfish grief could be dropped like a shabby old coat at the door and never put on again.” How grateful Christians are that there really is such a place. Think again with me of Lamentations 3:22-23 where we are wonderfully informed that Father God’s love and mercies never fail…in fact, they are new every morning. Did you mess up today? Words of love and praise unspoken…promises broken…duties neglected that might have made such a difference to some lonely, struggling soul. Do not despair, there is a way…a place…a grace…to begin fresh. We’ll be there by morning…because every morning His mercies are brand new. This will be true for every morning of the year 2013 as God may choose to give those mornings to us! So…who’s with me? How about a brand new start!

  1. His mercies and love and forgiveness is new every morning. I wish I could feel new every morning with less struggles in life. Sometimes I cannot let them go and just feel refreshed in my God. I just know that Jesus stayed so close to God in prayer and getting away to talk to Him often. I need to learn to do this better and
    God’s thoughts that He leaves with us will get in my deepest part of my being to not struggle so much with things on this earth that really burden and weigh you down.
    I want my life to be lighter and not so heavy knowing my Jesus and God. He says to give our burdens and heavy load to Him and I don’t know how to do that complet yet. Do you? If you do tell me some more things please about you.
