Good morning.


"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." (Lamentations 3:22‭-‬23 ESV)


We often find ourselves wanting to be used by God, but we wonder about the mistakes we’ve made in our lives. We say, “I’ve messed up way too many times.” So we disqualify ourselves from being used by God. We allow our mistakes to define us and label ourselves as something that we are not: hopeless, untrustworthy, a lost cause.


God’s mercies are new every morning. That means that every morning there is mercy for our mistakes. Even if we messed up yesterday, there continues to be new mercy for us today.


We are fearfully and wonderfully made. Before we had the ability to make mistakes, God had a plan for us. And even in our mistakes, God still has a plan for us in spite of our mistakes. He wants to use us even through our mistakes. He wants to use us even with our shortcomings.


Remember what Paul says, "we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
