Lamentations 3:1-66

As I read today’s passage I had a visual image of Jerusalem crying out the words written by Jeremiah She is the one who has seen it all, the rise of David and the built up city and fortifications of Solomon. It was within her walls that the gold laden Temple was constructed and slowly dismantled as each successive king failed to protect her by not fully walking uprightly before God or else going head long into sin. Jerusalem, the City of Zion, was picked out by God to be the city He dwelt in and built by man to try to reflect His glory, then abandoned by each successive generation.

Yet despite our failure to be faithful to God, God remains faithful to His people.

Grace and peace,

You, Lord, took up my case;
you redeemed my life.
Lamentations 3:58

The Lamentations 3:23 verse reminded me of the song, "The Steadfast Love of the Lord Never Ceases". Of course, the hymn "Great is Thy Faithfulness" is my favorite and I still get chills up my back when I sing the words in the chorus, "All I have needed Thy hand has provided".
