A Blessed Good Morning
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;his mercies never come to an end they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV ).

Regardless of our situation, we should make a commitment to keep hope alive in God.
Every morning is a good day. It's a day the Lord has made. There's no day we can run short on God's supply. His love---agape love--- for us never runs out. His mercy is ever available. In the wilderness, when the Israelites were fed with manna, God categorically warned there shouldn't be any leftover manna for the next morning. This I believe is an indication of how God renews His Provision every morning. I pray that by the time I finish with these portions of Scripture in Lamentations, no spirit of discouragement will find a foothold in your heart. I pray that yours will be a heart that bubbles with joy and glories in the grandeur of our soon coming King and Saviour ; Jesus Christ. Who loved us and offered Himself as a ransom for our sins to reconcile us unto God our father (2 Corinthians 5:21).
In Scriptures and I believe in our everyday life, "morning'' signifies a season or period of newness, new beginnings and freshness. Solomon in Ecclesiastes 11:6, advises that," In the morning, sow your seed...". That text speaks against procrastination. It entreats us to seize the moments and opportunities that comes our way. And it's amazing he used the morning season. It simply tells us every morning comes with it's new opportunities. One of the popular text of Scripture many have found encouragement in, mentions "morning": "...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning" (Psalm 30:5).
Morning also signifies a period we renew our fellowship with the LORD. In Genesis 3:8, we are introduced to a phrase "In the cool of the day''. I believe in the morning---cool of the day---God came for fellowship with His creation after ''His image and likeness". Jesus Himself also used the morning season to rejuvenate His strength: "And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed." (Mark 1:35). Every new day(morning) is an opportunity for us to be showered with the blessings of the Lord. It's an opportunity to experience the benevolence of God anew. Be blessed as you start the day in the renewed steadfast love and mercies of the Lord.
...Showers of blessings/Showers of blessings we need/Mercy drops round us are falling/But for the showers we plead.
