    Psalms 6:6-9

    "I was greatly troubled in my groaning. I will bathe my bed and my cover each night with my tears. I have become old in the midst of all my enemies. Depart from me, all you who work at lawlessness, for behold the lord has heard the cry of my weeping and the lord has heard my prayer."

    That long, horrible gaze into God's ugly mirror, the image of which becomes clean only through a myriad of flowing tears, and God's infinite grace and mercy.

    Psalm 56:8-9

    "You have taken account of my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle- are they not in Your book? Then my enemies will retreat on the day I cry for help. By this I will know that God is on my side."

    Exegesis on the Soul - Nag Hammadi Scriptures

    Psalm 103:1-5

    "Praise the lord, O my soul and all that is within me, praise his holy name. My soul, praise God, who forgave all your sins, who healed all your sicknesses, who ransomed your life from death, who crowned you with mercy, who satisfies your longing with good things. Your youth will be renewed like an eagle's."

    This passage shows God's purification process in the life of every believer. When troubles come to born-again Christians they are the will of God and for the purpose of God to perfect the child of God.

    A great hymn that incorporates the meaning of Lamentations 3 is "How firm a foundation."

    1

    "How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

    Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!

    What more can He say than to you He hath said,

    To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?"

    2

    "Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,

    For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;

    I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,

    Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand."

    3

    "When through the deep waters I call thee to go,

    The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;

    For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,

    And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress."

    4

    "When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,

    My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;

    The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design

    Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."

    5

    "E'en down to old age all My people shall prove

    My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;

    And then, when grey hairs shall their temples adorn,

    Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne."

    6

    "The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,

    I will not, I will not desert to his foes;

    That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,

    I'll never, no, never, no, never forsake."

    Chastening does not always come as punishment for sins. Job was not being punished for sins when he endured great trials and suffering. Chastening is for correction, for rebuke, for correction, and for instruction. The Lord breaks all born-again believers as part of the growth process.

    John 15:2

    Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

    As Christians grow and begin to bear fruit the Lord purges us so that we may bring forth more fruit.

    Once we begin to gain more victory over besetting sins after we are saved then we become prepared for the next step of Christian growth, which is the refiner's fire.

    Proverbs 25:4

    Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.
  • David on Lamentations 3 - 2 years ago
    Before us is pain and suffering. Behind us is cold and shivering. Deafening silence abounds about us because our sins have turned the LORD GOD away, "My strength and my hope is perished from the LORD:"

    But the LORD has caused me to remember

    "22 It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

    23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness."

    Thank YOU LORD for YOU are Righteous and Faithful and will not cast off for ever. V31

    We are in grief however it is not of the LORD'S doing. My Loving GOD has compassion according to the multitude of HIS Mercies. We therefore must not complain for the punishment of our sins.
  • David on Lamentations 3 - 2 years ago
    Continued from last post:

    Because of my transgressions, my enemies and those against my GOD, blaspheme HIS Holy Name and Character. I have given the lost further grounds to mistrust my KING and LORD of my life the LORD JESUS CHRIST. I know that they will receive the recompense according to the work of their hands. They will be covered with sorrow of heart, and cursed, persecuted, and destroyed from the Righteous anger from under the heavens of the LORD.

    However, compassionate LORD GOD, thank YOU as YOU bless all who will turn to YOU and give praise and glory unto the LIVING GOD, the anointed ONE - the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Thank YOU FATHER for hearing our cries and blessing all those who call YOU GOD and KING today.

    I hope and quietly wait for YOUR appearance in the clouds. YOUR saints await the shout of YOUR VOICE "to come up hither."

    Our wait for the LORD should be a "working" while waiting. Reminds me of an gospel song:

    "Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,

    Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;Waiting for the harvest, and and the time of reaping,

    We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves"

    "Bringing In the Sheaves" Written By Knowles Shaw; Psalm 126:6

    I pray LORD for YOUR intercession regarding Russia/Ukraine. Our President Biden and his administration turns to Your wisdom and lean not unto his own understanding. Praying for comfort and peace unto those who are contemplating abortion; that they find joy and love in Christ Jesus.

    Thank You LORD for hearing and answering our cries and supplications.

    When reading this this morning all I could think of is the repetitive losses and yet his continued trust in the Lord through it all
  • Jerry - In Reply on Lamentations 3 - 4 years ago
    Yes, I think so, but I think there be a deeper meaning also. Jesus said that from the days of John the Baptist til now when Jesus was speaking those words the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violence take it by force. In Lamentations 1, it also speaks of a fall from heaven. There are allegories all throughtout the OT.
  • Diedra Trivino on Lamentations 3 - 4 years ago
    This Chap. is it about a man crying about all the sins of jeureslume ??
  • Sharon on Lamentations 3 - 5 years ago
    Everyone want the blessings, but nobody wants the pain. Trial, and tribulation, bring us the greatest joy we will ever know. Temptation will bless us with the crown of life. What the enemy mean for evil God cause us to receive exceedingly great Joy. Jeremiah had to endure, but it was the faith of Jeremiah that please God, and allow Jeremiah to continue in God. What is God receiving from from you?
  • Vanessa on Lamentations 3 - 5 years ago
    psalms 103:9 God will not always accuse us,nor harbor his anger forever.Pray without ceasing forgiveness of your sins we have a Good God who loves us and is merciful. Thank you Father
  • Margaret Adams on Lamentations 3 - 6 years ago
    Thank you God for your mercies and grace they are renew every day. You died for our sin that we may live a beautiful life with our brother and sister.
  • A disciple on Lamentations 3 - 6 years ago
    When we read the Gospel Narratives of Jesus' temptations and trials, of His being hated and harassed and persecuted, and of His at one point being completely given into the hands of the wicked to be mocked, condemned and destroyed; how many of us are able to consider what ALL is actually happening? He came into the world for that reason, to bear witness of the truth; and so does He send us.
  • Brianna vs.25 on Lamentations 3 - 6 years ago
    Good is Jehovah to the one hoping in him, to the person who keeps seeking him.

    Jehovah God is the only means of salvation out of this wicked world. As we creep deeper and deeper into these last days, we see more and more how humans can not ring about any sort of hope or help to human kind. We have to put trust in Jehovah God in order to survive Armageddon.
  • Andy on Lamentations 3 - 7 years ago
    Enduring tests of faith will help us to deal with future challenges
  • A disciple on Lamentations 3 - 7 years ago
    I am always shocked when I read or hear someone (especially [so-called] Christians) speaking against the servants of the LORD. God was not displeased with Jeremiah; but Jeremiah was in great pain in his heart because he loved so greatly; but his love and all that he tried to reach those people, was rejected and mocked. We should have that kind of love that weeps over the destruction of the sinner!
  • Lilly on Lamentations 3 - 7 years ago
    Jeremiah showed a waiting attitude and relied on Jehovah in his life, we want to‚Äč show the same patience in our lives.
  • M Dennis on Lamentations 3 - 7 years ago
    I thank the Lord for a new day and another Thanksgiving. Thank you Lord for new mercies and new grace. For not consuming me, when I've gone astray. Thank you for your son who died for me and set me free. I pray for all nations, especially these United States. That you will save our leaders, if they don't know you. That they might govern this world according to your plan. I come against all powers of evil in the world and leaders who are high-minded and destroy innocent lives. Let us have peace this day. Help me to show love towards all people that they may be drawn to you. And that you might gain glory out of my life. Bless all who seek you Lord. My soul loves you more and more. Thank you for choosing me that I might choose you.
  • Irene123 on Lamentations 3 - 7 years ago
    To Lena Mae - Jeremiah was a chosen prophet of God; God chose him and God KNEW his end from his beginning. Jeremiah didn't displease God; he was speaking in the 1st person for God's people. Every prophet had his own way of prophesying; this was Jeremiah's. Jeremiah LOVED God; please believe that. He was the 'weeping' prophet; he wept over God's people.
  • John magiro on Lamentations 3 - 7 years ago

  • LenaMae on Lamentations 3 - 7 years ago
    I know God speaks truths,God did then andGod still speaks truths to all of us.God Is perfect, and always does just what He says..I really believe that here in these scriptures of God truths He was not very happy with Jeremiah, and still Godhelped Him,causeGod loves Him so much.God loves us all, and God isn't happy with the way we don't give everything up too Him..God isn't just on the side lines..

    The darkest times of my life, is when i hear the voice of GOD more clear say I AM then any other time. Isaiah 50vs10 Who is among you that fears the Lord, who obeys the voice of his servant, who walketh in darkness and has no light, let him trust in the name of the Lord and lean upon his GOD!
