Friday

This Morning

I wept when I saw the sunrise this morning. I went to bed sad about poor choices that one person is making and the pain those choices are causing to many others. I slept fitfully, my dreams telling me that my brain was unable to rest from thinking of all the going's-on around me with a new school year, new job, busy season at work for husband, and just the general aches and worries that come from living in a fallen world. I was so thankful to see the bright beams of sun as a promise for a new day.

Such a moment always makes me think of Lamentations 3:22,23:

"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."

So thankful for a new day and God's tender mercies that are truly new every morning.

"But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. O my Strength, I sing praise to you; you, O God, are my fortress, my loving God." Psalm 59:16,17

The worst part about sleeping in past dawn is missing the sunrise. A sight worth beholding with tears in your eyes.
