New Morning Mercies
God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,
his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.
They’re created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness!
I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).
He’s all I’ve got left. – Lamentations 3:22-24
Sunrises are always a reminder to me of God’s mercies and how they never run out or dry out! Visiting with a friend the other day, I was reminded of the phrase “New Morning Mercies” from the devotional by Paul Tripp. Each morning I would sit and read the outlined scripture and his thoughts on the passage and then pray through it myself. I will be honest there are many times I fall back into the mindset that if I don’t have a quiet time with the Lord each day, I must not be a good Christian. THANKFULLY, that is never the case! Jesus desires a relationship, even with the ups and downs, and not a checklist. We have new mercies every morning.
So as your encouragement today, I pray that you put down the checklist and accept His mercies each day and go to Him with thanksgiving and praise.
We are so thankful for the many families who have seen the importance of our pool. More than the amount needed, it is exciting to see people’s involvement and passion for creating a place where play can take place and the Gospel be presented. It is all about setting the stage for Jesus to transform lives.
As for the repairs, the pool has been drained, plaster removed, lights replaced and leaks found and being repaired. The next step will the new plaster being installed. Lastly, we are still waiting for the slide manufacture to ship the new slide. We are very excited because when all the repairs and updates are made, it will feel like a brand new pool!
LEGOs… LEGOs… and more LEGOs
We got some LEGOs in the mail the other day and it was like Christmas morning all over again for us!
If you have been to Tejas recently, you might have noticed a LEGO bin in the dining hall. If you have LEGOs at home that are stored away and being neglected… let’s bring them to life! Would you donate them to Tejas and bring or mail them to us? Both kids and adults have so much fun using their God-given creativity to have fun together as a family.
