My morning view
As I awoke before sunrise, I quickly went out to the patio to view the sunrise. Faithfully, He blesses me again. Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed, His hand has provided...and again today I am blessed. As that lovely song proclaims...great is His faithfulness unto me.
Know matter what I face this day, He will know about it before I do.
He knows the end from the beginning.
As I sat and waited for His first blessing of the day, all was quiet. The first rays reflected on the remaining thin rippled clouds left over from the evening storm. The storm has past and shades of pink and gold appear. The quietness is broken. The crane's in the water began their squawking, and the white egrets flew up in groups to welcome the first morning light. It seemed the Creator was signaling all to "awake!" Awake with joy and newness, not with yesterday's left over clouds.
He is saying, "Today is a new day, and how will you use it?"
Sure the world may want to steal my happiness with debt, illness and other dark clouds, but no one on this earth can steal the inner joy He gives me.
Be glad, oh be glad. Every debt I ever had has been paid up in full, by the grace of the Lord, be glad, be glad, be glad. Like lights on the rim of the water, giving hope to those on the stormy night sea, be glad.
I am timeless and part of His plan. So I can be glad.
By the grace of the Lord,and only through Him can I enjoy today and be glad. Philippians 4:13...a good reminder.
