Psalms 6:6-9

"I was greatly troubled in my groaning. I will bathe my bed and my cover each night with my tears. I have become old in the midst of all my enemies. Depart from me, all you who work at lawlessness, for behold the lord has heard the cry of my weeping and the lord has heard my prayer."

That long, horrible gaze into God's ugly mirror, the image of which becomes clean only through a myriad of flowing tears, and God's infinite grace and mercy.

Psalm 56:8-9

"You have taken account of my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle- are they not in Your book? Then my enemies will retreat on the day I cry for help. By this I will know that God is on my side."

Exegesis on the Soul - Nag Hammadi Scriptures

Psalm 103:1-5

"Praise the lord, O my soul and all that is within me, praise his holy name. My soul, praise God, who forgave all your sins, who healed all your sicknesses, who ransomed your life from death, who crowned you with mercy, who satisfies your longing with good things. Your youth will be renewed like an eagle's."

This passage shows God's purification process in the life of every believer. When troubles come to born-again Christians they are the will of God and for the purpose of God to perfect the child of God.

A great hymn that incorporates the meaning of Lamentations 3 is "How firm a foundation."


"How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!

What more can He say than to you He hath said,

To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?"


"Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,

For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;

I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,

Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand."


"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,

The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;

For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,

And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress."


"When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,

My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;

The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design

Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."


"E'en down to old age all My people shall prove

My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;

And then, when grey hairs shall their temples adorn,

Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne."


"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,

I will not, I will not desert to his foes;

That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,

I'll never, no, never, no, never forsake."

God loves as and we live because of his power his grace, and if it was on our own strength, we would be no where. I thank my living God.

Great is His faithfulness and kindness


Toni's comment on 2014-03-22 09:06:03:

What a wonderful God we truly serve God s tenderness and benevolence towards peoople who are wicked sinful and full of guile is beyond comprehension We don t deserve all His mercies and most truly don t appreciate it Yet God loved the world He created so much that He gave His only begotten Son Jesus to save us This verse lets us know that God could destroy us off the face of the earth but because of his many mercies and the fact that his pity for us does not cease that He gives each person a chance to find His Son Jesus The fact that His compassions are new each morning should make us want to run even closer to Him That with fear and trembling daily we should cry out for the Lord to continue to have mercy on us and to cleanse us of our sinful ways God is great in His lovingkindness and His tender mercies Each day they are brand new He will keep His word and do just what He says He will do It is us who have not been faithful to God Lord I pray that in me you grant me the wisdom and the humbleness of heart and the power to be faithful to you Bless the Lord

I think the mercies of God is inexplicable, may his compassion dwell forever.


Evalena Jacobs-Latham's comment on 2013-05-09 06:09:58:

I thank God for His mercies and compassions in our time even as they were in days gone. This assures us of our security in Him; even in this day of terrorism and destruction. Almighty God is still in charge of this world. We do not understand it all, but if was not for His grace all of us would have been destroyed by evil men.


dedarah's comment on 2012-09-17 03:13:30:

I think it wonders to know that GOD loves us so much that he renews his mercy and grace, as sinners saved by his son Jesus, we have been redeemed. Thank you Lord GOD
