Lamentations 3:21 ” Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope.”

Jeremiah sits observing the destruction of his beloved city of Jerusalem.  All around is utter chaos, death, and carnage.  It’s at that very lowest point that he forces himself to remember…to recall all the Lord has done for him.  He ponders God’s loving mercy, His trustworthiness, and  faithfulness…and in doing so, lays hold again of his confidence and trust in the Lord.
