Dare to Hope.

Series: Let's Talk About It | Week 3: Anxiety

Read Lamentations 3:21-24

“Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, ‘The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in Him!’”

1. What does Jeremiah remember to help him hang on to hope?
2. Which characteristics of God does Jeremiah highlight?
3. How does Jeremiah’s self-talk affect the way he views his circumstances and his perception of God?

Jeremiah begins this passage with “yet,” indicating a turning point in his conversation with God. He has laid out his hurts and struggles before God and chooses to replace his negative thoughts with the truth of God’s love, faithfulness, mercy, and hope. Take some time now to thank God for who He is and the way He shows up in the middle of your battles day after day to remind you that you can put your hope in Him.
