Minute Meditations of Hope and Encouragement #111

In the midst of his sorrows, after Jerusalem had been emptied and all the nation sent into captivity, Jeremiah was alone, he had been spared by Nebuchadnezzar. At this time Jeremiah wrote the acrostic poem we call Lamentations to express his grief. He wrote, “is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow which was brought upon me, which the Lord inflicted on the day of his fierce anger…” 1:12. Through the gloom the sun finally shone when he could declare 3:22-26 “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” V25 “the Lord is good to those who wait for him, it is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
