Lamentations was a short book, but very sad. The author is mourning the fate of Jerusalem after it fell to Babylon. His people are scattered and the city is in ruins. Yet in all this, he stops to remember that the Lord is faithful and will restore His people. God promised redemption to Israel and Judah, and that redemption will come in the form of His son, sent to die for our sins. I need to remember to praise God, no matter what season of life I'm going through.
Also, if you could be praying/sending good thoughts my way, I'd really appreciate it. I have a job interview today and tomorrow, and I'm really hoping to get one, if not both of these jobs. Thanks so much!
