Great is God’s faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.” (Lamentations 3:23 NLT)
The great American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once remarked about the beauty of a new day: “Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays.”
On this last day of Summer, a beautiful one here in Central Arkansas, it’s a good time to bid an old season goodbye and to welcome a new one in. Just as each new morning starts for me with a steaming cup of coffee, it also comes with the promise of new things and healing moments that God spent all night preparing while I slept. To imagine that God gives each of us the opportunity to start over everyday is the best feeling ever!
As you start your new day today and everyday, start it with a new mindset. You can choose to either dread it or embrace it. The difference is up to you! You are loved today!
