New Day

Yesterday was hard

and I was losing hope


but this morning

You were there, Lord


You awakened me with Your love

and the encouragement


of a fresh, new day


Your mercies rose

with the sun on the horizon


I am being made new

over and over


And it’s a good thing

for the hard press of this world


leaves me low sometimes


But each dawn

there You are


I wake up to YOU


Waiting to instill new hope

and renewed purpose


Thank You, Jesus

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

– Romans 15:13 (NLT)


The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
    His mercies never cease.
Great is His faithfulness;
    His mercies begin afresh each morning.

– Lamentations 3:22,23 (NLT)


And now, God, do it again— bring rains to our drought-stricken lives So those who planted their crops in despair will shout hurrahs at the harvest, So those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.

– Psalm 126:5,6 (MSG)
