    · Take a look at your cell phone bill. Many of us overestimate our cell phone usage. Drop minutes or features you’re not using to add to your savings.

  • Great is the faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each day. Lamentations 3:23

    Jeremiah had almost given up hope but God reminded him that his mercies are new every morning. The Hebrew term for “mercies” can be translated “covenant love” or “steadfast love.” It is linked with compassion, truth and faithfulness.

    In the middle of this valley of judgment and suffering, Jeremiah realized that “the Lord is good to those who wait for Him.” And this is true today as well.
