Sweeter Than Honey is a 365-day devotional journey that leads the reader
The loss of peace, the forgetting of what true happiness is, the lack of endurance and hope, these are things Jeremiah and the people of Jerusalem struggled with. They are the same things many of us struggle with as well. We long for peace, happiness, endurance, and hope. “But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope” (3:21) the prophet writes. What does Jeremiah remember and where does he find hope?
Jeremiah still remembers how Israel and Judah arrived at this horrific place: “The joy of our hearts has ceased; our dancing has been turned to mourning. The crown has fallen from our head; woe to us, for we have sinned” (Lamentations 5:15-16)! Sin! However, at the same time, he knows where his hope lies.
When I read God’s Word each morning, I find inspiration and insight that keeps my day on track. Join me on this journey. Let’s settle in with His Word—it’s His Love Letter to us. Did you know that? Let’s read it like a Love Letter, expecting to glean something for our walk with Him every day. Let’s look for peace in the chaos and strength for our weaknesses. Even on our busiest days we can carve out a few minutes to refocus on the important. Can’t we? We may have to get up a little earlier, when the house is still and quiet, or stay up a few minutes after the others are tucked in for the night, but we can do this! I know we can!
