We are not consumed…

One of my favorite scriptures is from Lamentations 3.  It starts out saying.. “Because of the Lord’s great love.. we are not consumed..”  And while that is true- — our God is a consuming fire,  it sounds so harsh…. so Old Testament.  Another meaning for that word consumed is (depleted).  You might like reading it this way.  “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not depleted..”  This world certainly depletes us.  The aging process wears us away.  Pressures of life, finances, relationships… all have a way of reducing our strength, vitality and joy.   Ahh.. but we are not consumed by these…”His mercies never fail.. they are new every morning!”  Count on that.  Lovingly remind God of his promises and what he reveals about himself in his word.
