Each day is a new beginning. A day is like a moment in eternity and in each moment we can begin anew, move forward and to not allow the past to drag us down. We can learn from our past, seek to do better in the present and learn patience with ourselves and an ever growing trust in God’s love for us.
God’s love is like the Sun that gives its light to all. We have the freedom to respond to this light or not. Our existence is a great gift; we have it only once, though it is filled with mystery and many “whys” that will not be answered. We are pushed, goaded to find deeper meaning, no rest, but as we age, if we seek truth and love, then something happens within, a peace comes in the midst of suffering, anguish and pain.
The beauty of what is around us is also noticed and others become shinning lights because we begin to see their beauty, courage and determination to move forward. We learn not to judge the heart of anyone, learning from our own wounds and struggles and many failures and our starting anew. The just man falls seven times a day -- I fall more times than that.
God love is a gift,
just as our love is a gift
we bestow on one another,
our love flows from the font of life,
our love finite, limited,
God’s love is infinite unlimited,
deeper in and higher up,
is Christ Jesus will and desire
What does the new day mean to you? How do you plan to use this day to bring glory to God?
