On a recent airline flight the landing was somewhat rough. Some of the passengers were visibly nervous, but the tensions broke when two little boys sitting behind me cheered, saying "Yeah! Let's do that again!"

Children are very open to new adventures and see life with humble, wide-eyed wonder. Perhaps this is part of what Jesus had mind when He said that we have to "receive the kingdom of God like a little child" (Mark 10:15).

Life has its challenges and heart-aches. Few knew this better than Jeremiah, who is also called "the weeping Prophet." But in the middle of Jeremiah's troubles, God encouraged him with an amazing truth. "The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning" (Lamentations 3:22-23).

God's fresh mercies can break into our lives at any time. They are always there, and we see them when we live with childlike expectation-watching and waiting for what only He can do. Jeremiah knew that God's goodness is not defined only by our immediate circumstances and that His faithfulness is greater than life's rough places. Look for God's fresh mercies today.
