Lamentations 3: 17 – 29

| August 30, 2013

The cry of Jeremiah when he was put through trials and sufferings. The promise of hope and the goodness of God. And the need to wait and be humble before Him.

17 I have been deprived of peace;
I have forgotten what prosperity is.
18 So I say, ‘My splendor is gone
and al that I had hoped from the Lord.’

19 I remember my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall.
20 I well remember them,
and my soul is downcast within me.

21 Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.’

25 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him,
to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.

27 It is good for a man to bear the yoke
while he is young.
28 Let him sit alone in silence,
for the Lord has laid it on him.
29 Let him bury his face in the dust –
there may yet be hope.

La 3:17-29

About the Author ()

I have been a follower of Christ for more than 20 years now. Started from a Methodist church, then went on to a few charasmatic churches and again back to a Methodist church now. Thus I have experienced and seen a wide flavor of different denominations. Personally, I consider myself non-denominational as I can worship in many different styles. The important thing is that I follow the gospel and love Jesus. I am currently serving as a musician and a worship leader in my church. I believe that my calling is to help others enter into the presence of God through worship. I also enjoy teaching and discipling other believers, which is the main reason why this site was started. I hope to find other believers to join me in this cause to reach out and encourage other believers.
