  1. Jennifer,
    My “word” from yesterday was/is “intentional”. I want to be intentional about living every day like it was January 1 – being blessed with His mercies that are new EVERY morning! Love this scripture and thanks for the handy reminder…

  2. Love this! Thank you.

    Will the monthly printable be here at incourage or on your personal blog?

    Again – thank you! 🙂

  3. Thank you for for your encouraging words and for sharing your talents with us. You are a real blessing to me!

  4. Thank you! Such a perfect reminder as to why I must start each day a fresh with our Intercessor and Savior!

  5. Thanks so much! I didn’t want to make any resolutions for this year but I couldn’t get away from thinking about the moments where I failed in 2013! And there was all the shame about being so unperfectly and being so less strong!
    But His mercies are new …EVERY morning.
    I need to see more love in Christ. He is so full of deep love for us and I need to see it and feel it! More than ever before. Maybe it’s the best resolution for a new year!
    Be blessed!

  6. This verse has been on my heart for days now Jen. I think of it when I wake up in the morning and as the new year begins. How miraculous that we are given mercies every day. Thank you so much for this sweet girl. Praying all is well.

  7. Amazing how consistently this is resonating in my life right now! My word was “prayer.” So basic, but really at the root of all I want or hope to accomplish this year. And again God reminded me that I will mess up, I will forget, but it is never too late to make a fresh start.

  8. Thank you, Jennifer, for the beautiful printable. I have the perfect frame for this, and will look forward to updating it each month so there is something fresh on my desk to encourage me. I’m with you about fresh hope each and every day too! May you have small wonders and kind words come back to you each day to breath just such a freshness anew! Blessings on you and your studio endeavors in this new year of 2014!

  9. Jennifer,

    Thank you for the reminder that it is ok to mess up, because God will forgive us and give us new mercies daily!

    I think my word for the year is renewed. I want to be renewed & refreshed in the Lord and go deeper into His word.

    Have a blessed year!

  10. I have actually been wanting to put this verse in both my bathrooms so it is the first thing we see every morning. Now I don’t have to come up with a way to do it. Thank you!!

  11. Thank you so much for sharing this.. This helped me and encourages more to continue on. And I hope that’s it’s okay with you to use this for our prayer meeting’s sharing/teaching tonight. I already have a subject prior seeing this image scripture. This helps and adds more idea to my sharing/teaching later. I hope I can get an answer from you within 3 hours because out prayer meeting will start within 5 hours.

    But I wanna thank you for sharing this! You are a blessing to me! God bless you more and your family, Jennifer.
