He won't relent/ Great is His Faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-33

22 Because of the LORD’s great mercies (God's gracious love, grace, mercy, goodness, forgiveness, truth, compassion, and faithfulness.) we are not consumed,
for his compassion never fails.
23 They are new every morning;
great and abundant is your stability and faithfulness. (God always keeps His promises.)
24 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will hope and wait for him.”

25 The LORD is good to those whose who wait and their hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation (the safety and ease) of the LORD.
27 It is good for a man to bear the yoke (the disciplinary training)
while he is young.

28 Let him sit alone , uncomplaining, and keep silence,
for the LORD has laid it on him (for his benefit.)
29 Let him bury his face in the dust— (in submission, realizing how unworthy he is)
there may yet be hope.
30 Let him offer his cheek to one who would strike him,
and let him be filled with disgrace.(Let him be filled with men's reproach in meekness, compliant, gentle, kind and humbly patient.)

31 For no one is cast off
by the Lord forever.
32 Though he brings grief, he will show compassion,
so great is his unfailing love.
33 For he does not willingly bring affliction
or grief to anyone.

Another awesome verse I found on a blog this morning.

"The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."

~Exodus 14:14


On another note, I cannot get this song out of my head. SUCH wonderful lyrics:

You won't relent
Until You have it all
My heart is Yours
I'll set You as a seal upon my heart
As a seal upon my arm
For there is love that is as strong as death
Jealousy demanding as the grave
And many waters cannot quench this love

Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are one
