  1. Thanks for this reminder that He can bring peace in the middle of all the pieces in our lives! It’s been the kind of week where I needed to hear that again.

  2. “Here we are again…” — I often sigh condemnation over myself at that statement. And yet…there’s SUCH Grace found there.

    Such peace!

    Rich blessings as He comforts you when you’re *there* again…and again…and again.

    • I, too, find myself in the rolling-eyes-sigh of “here we go again.” And yet, I wonder if He sees it as a joyful opportunity–like a parent who does not exasperate when the child tumbles from the bike and has to “start over” teaching them to balance. Maybe He finds more joy in teaching that we realize.

  3. “Here again” This is me over and over, Jennifer! Lay it down–again! Thank God we have an infinitely merciful Father. All is grace! (I need it all!)

  4. I love the truth that His mercy is new every morning because I used all of yesterdays up. His patience with us over whelms me since these “here we are again Lord times” never end but each time I come away with a deeper understanding of this new mercy. My understanding of the depths of His love for me grows in those times, along with my understanding of how frail I am. Like a loving Father He lets us get puffed up with ourselves knowing something will deflat us sooner or later and there He will be, encouraging us to, as you said, get over ourselves. Thanks for the heart felt post…I am just getting over myself ONCE AGAIN and basking in His never ending love. Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him
