Faithfully Fresh

I need a fresh perspective.  New.  Because I've let some things get stale.  Things like searching for ways to serve my husband.  Like what to write on Mondays about being a vigilant wife.  Like my daily motivations for why I'm doing what I do. 
 
I was thinking about this stale state and remembered this Scriptural gem that has always amazed me.
 
God's loyal love couldn't have run out,

his merciful love couldn't have dried up.
They're created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness!

Lamentations 3:22-24

There is something so poignant about loyal love being created new every morning.  Something truly breathtaking about faithful newness.  I think it relates here.  Even though Jeremiah was writing about the nation of Israel and his steadfast hope in Who he knew God to be.  I think it relates because God is God.  Always.  No matter what.  His character is unchanging.  Therefore, His love and mercy never ever stop. 
 
And . . .
 
they never, ever gets stale.  Because His faithfulness provides fresh love and mercy every.single.morning. of every single lifetime.
 
I could use your prayers as I seek His faithfully fresh way to lead me in this blog, and this vigilance in my marriage.  I have been asking Him to show me where He would have me go with this little club of vigilant wives.  I've been asking some hard questions...am I fulfilling my purpose as a wife?  Am I encouraging my readers to do the same?  How can I do this better?  
 
And I would love your input.  And I would seriously treasure your prayers.

Praying for you sweet friend. His love is new every morning. It is a choice to seek Him. Praying for you as you are choosing to do just that. "Seek first His kingdom and all these things shall be added unto you." I love that "all these things" is not so specific. It is any thing and every thing He knows you need. I know for me, being vigilant means less computer time, which mean less posts. Not less vigilant, just less posts. =0)Staying vigilant without a post this week. =0) Kelly
