Steadfast Love, Never-ending Mercy, Great Faithfulness

I wrote yesterday about having a "morning song" and shared what is my "morning song" - Lamentations 3:22, 23 (you will find it at this link.)  I love these verses - not only do they encourage me with the truth of how God's love and mercy for me are steadfast, unending, new each day, and bigger than I am able to imagine, but they fill me with hope knowing these things are true also for the ones I love. God's love and mercy for them will not end!

Hope, yes we are able to have hope, because God's love, mercy and faithfulness never end! Take time today to notice how God shows these three things to you and tell your grandchildren all about it! Help them learn to watch for how God shows His love, mercy, and faithfulness to them as well - so they are able to live with this same encouragement and hope.

Consider posting this verse in your home and make it a part of what you pray daily for your children and grandchildren -

"Dear Lord, please help my children/grandchildren experience hope when they see today how Your love and mercy never end. Thank You for Your great faithfulness - Amen!"
And use it as a blessing you pray over them and with them at meals and bedtime -
"Dear Faithful God, please give us eyes which see today/tomorrow how Your love and mercy never end. Thank You for Your great faithfulness and the hope this brings to our lives. Amen." 
If you would like a print of this blessing, you will find it at this link - just download and print for free! Consider making this your Summer Blessing and then print a few extras and give them to your grandchildren to put in their own bedrooms.
