A New Dawning

As I arise this morning, I am awakened by the sound of birds, the soft rain falling, and the whistling frogs are making merry music as they welcome the passing showers. In the distance Cocks are crowing as they welcome and herald the opening of a brand new morning.

I too join with this chorus of sounds as I lift my heart to heaven, and my voice declares:

New every morning is the love
our wakening and uprising prove;
through sleep and darkness safely brought,
restored to life and power and thought.

New mercies, each returning day,
hover around us while we pray;
new perils past, new sins forgiven,
new thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.

If on our daily course our mind
be set to hallow all we find,
new treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

Father! Thank You for another day, thank You for another opportunity to be salt and light in the earth today. Let this day be indeed a blessed one, for I place it in Your hands in Jesus’ Name. Amen!

Have a great Sunday.
