Positive Words

Lamentations 3:40 KJV
Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.

Right in the middle of one of the most solemn and mournful books in the Bible are found some of the most inspirational and hopeful verses in the Bible.

The book of Lamentations is written as a series of poetical pieces, each piece is twenty two lines long with the except of chapter three, which is a series of three twenty two's; sixty six lines in all. Not all the chapter is positive, but much of it is. And one of those verses that lifts and inspires is this one.

As far away as a man can become from the Lord he always has this encouragement,

  • He can stop in his tracks
  • He can search and
  • He can try his ways and
  • He can turn again to the LORD

There is no one whose sin has taken him so far that he can't be back in the presence of the Lord with just a simple turn.
