New mercies that come with life…

Lamentations 3:22-23

King James Version (KJV) 22 – It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  -23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

This morning I gained illumination and a better understanding of this verse.

Last night,  I was sorta preparing myself for this morning and yet through the night came immense saddness when I dreamt that I saw my brother’s body half covered by sand.

Then I woke up. It was still early but I could not go back to sleep for the saddness of just seeing his body like that again.  No big about the sand and he coulda just been sleeping under the sand like how kids bury you in fun…but I knew this wasn’t the case

I honestly didn’t think I’d be able to get up or gst ready for church… but eventually I closed my eyes for a bit and awoke afreshed.

With a grateful heart. With that verse in head and a song in the heart. 

‘I have to believe…. that He sees my darkness.’

Which in turn makes me think of Paris Jackson because I understand what she is going through and the darkness of grief that had not been allowed to heal in her heart is trying to consume her and take her emotions to the next heightened level where you feel like you are losing it and are borderling.

It is only Christ and time that will bring back the control and peace in the soul….

And shine that new mercy when the pit of darkness is all you see.
