Lamentations: Jeremiah’s Journal of Woes
The book of Lamentations is the prophet Jeremiah’s heartbroken, graphic lament after God judged the Jews for their unrepentant sin. Its pages of detailed devastation remind us a holy God will not remain silent forever when His people disobey Him.
But Lamentations is also a book of hope. From the rubble of Jerusalem’s judgment, the promise of restoration rises like the morning sun over the eastern hills. God’s mercies shine new every morning. Great is His faithfulness toward those who cry out to Him in their lament and seek Him through their sorrows.
