Hoping to share the love, joy, and grace I have received in my own life.

We Get Another Chance

on July 10, 2021
Sunrise, July 10, 2021, Chana, IL

If yesterday wasn’t your day (or maybe the past few days, week, or month), today is brand new. I was reflecting this morning on Psalm 73:26, “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” We are in God’s grip each day of our lives and even more so because we have the hope of resurrection. Whatever we face each day, keeping our focus on God gives us assurance that we are loved. We are treasured. We are held. People are going to let us down, even those we love, but God does not fail. God’s mercy is new each day. This beautiful morning is a brand new chance to focus on God, to treat others the way Jesus taught us, and to sit a few minutes with the Holy Spirit and listen to what God might speak to our hearts today.

Thank you, God of this beautiful sunrise, for your love, new to us each morning. We know that day and night you are working for good in the world. Guide our steps today. Grow in us a desire to serve you, to truly love our neighbors, and to focus on Jesus, our Savior, as we go about this Saturday morning. We are thankful for your new mercies today. In the precious name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
