“great is your faithfulness” Lamentations 3: 23
These words, core of one our hymns, are in the middle chapter of Lamentations and nearly in the middle of the chapter. It seems intentional and symbolic for how one should view life.
Lamentations is written in the midst of great trouble. And in the midst of all those lamentations, peeling away all the layers of trouble, Jeremiah finds this as the heart of the matter: the comfort that God’s children know that the LORD is faithful. As we enter 2021, may that be our comfort, may that be the core of our existence.
