New Mercies

These last couple of days have, for a variety of reasons, been really tough for me. I've been exhausted, worn-out, and occasionally even tired of being a doctor. This year has been both great and one of the toughest of my life. Intern year definitely stretches you and challenges you a thousand different ways every day, and this week more so than others I have definitely realized that I cannot do it alone. I spent most of yesterday near tears all day after starting the day by being treated like a total peon by one of our consulting doctors. As I was getting to the end of the day, the Lord brought a verse to my mind, "This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it." I can't say that I was rejoicing after that, but I can say that it made me feel better.

When I got home from work today around 10:30, and the sun was shining in the bright blue sky, I was reminded of another verse.
From Lamentations 3
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; [2]
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”

Thank you, Lord for this new day with its new mercies.
