Has God Forgotten

Has God Forgotten...

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,  His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning,  great is His faithfulness."  Lamentations 3:22-23

Does it ever feel like God seems to have forgotten your trials and hardships? Things seem to go from bad to worse... One step forward then two steps back.

Maybe all you hear is silence when you pray. The often quoted scripture above is one that has brought me comfort over the years, especially when I have questions and I'm looking for answers.  
I find comfort in the fact that God's love for me is constant.  His mercies are new every day for each of us. We don't get what we really deserve (mercy) and we get get what we don't really deserve (grace).

This last year and a half has been trying for all of us. But God has not forgotten me and He has not forgotten you. After thirty surgeries in two years I'm reminded that God loves me and His mercies are endless to me.

Let's not be like so many who go through each day without God yet when things go wrong they blame God. God is faithful and will always be.
