TAKING YOUR BREATH AWAY

“The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.”  Lamentations 3:22-23

My stepdaughter has been babysitting a toddler boy from our church for a little while.  When going to pick her up one day and waiting on the boy’s mother to make it home, I played with him in a room where he had a row of trucks that we played with for quite a few minutes.  After this, he escorted us into his bedroom, where he had a large toy box.  He climbed in the toy box and gasped a large gasp every time he took out a different truck, as if he had found a brand new treasure that he had never seen before.
My stepdaughter giggled and told me that he plays with those trucks every day.  But discovering them once again was like a new, dear, and exciting experience!  What a wonderful world in which this little one has the privilege of living!
How much more should our discovery of God’s lovingkindnesses and compassions to us be every time we encounter them!  In our daily Bible readings, we should discover a new treasure that absolutely takes our breath away.  When we spend our time meditating on God and praying to Him, we ought to have an exciting experience every day.  As we share these experiences and discoveries with others, perhaps they would be so inspired to seek out such encounters.
Why would we have such encounters of discovering treasures and having experiences that take our breath away?  Because His compassion was manifest at the cross.  His lovingkindness was proven at the open tomb.  And His great faithfulness is at walk with us in our daily lives!

Let us be sure to open our minds and hearts to discover and receive His lovingkindnesses, compassions and great faithfulness so that we can be blessed in them and share them with others!
