Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday…and a big welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! Well…we made it through Monday…and I just can’t help but think that God will bring us through Tuesday too! As you begin this brand new day; I pray that His loving presence will be very close beside you…and that you will feel Him, in every part of your day!
You know…I remember a time in my life, when I would focus so much on every day of the week…all at one time. I had so many thoughts racing through my mind; that I couldn’t even find time to enjoy the day that God had just placed before me.
One thing I love about my mornings; is looking out my office window to a brand new day. Everything seems to feel alive…refreshed and renewed, as though everything from yesterday is truly gone, while something brand new is standing before me.
How many times do we miss out on the blessings that God has for us, in a brand new day…all because we are focusing on days that haven’t even arrived yet. I remember times in the past, when I would worry myself to death over something that never even happened. Seems like we look too far down the road, while thinking that this may go wrong or that may happen in a different way…and then by time that day arrives; we see where all those moments of worry were for nothing.
I have come to truly see that the only way to remain in sync with God; is to walk through one day and let the other days follow, as He opens them up to us. Many times…as the sun sets and darkness takes over the earth…I see that darkness, as if it’s a blind that’s been pulled down by God…a place where He works to create another new day. Then as the darkness turns to sunlight; it’s as if the blind has been drawn back up, to reveal the artistry of a God who longs to give us a new beginning in life. Just think…no matter what we do wrong…or no matter what happens; there is always another new day…filled with His loving mercies…a time, when we’re given another chance, to experience something new.
One thing I’d like to say; is if we are way ahead of God; then how will we ever experience the newness that God is offering us? Instead, I think we will find ourselves lost in the darkness, of a day that hasn’t even come into existence…and I don’t know about you; but I would rather anticipate a new day…filled with new blessings and new beginnings, rather than walking deeper into darkness.
As you prepare to walk through another new day with God, may I encourage you to take it one step at a time? Look for the footprints of where He may be leading you and walk in His ways. Anticipate His very best and then let Him lead you to His very best. I have truly come to see that when we take life one step at a time; then we will never find ourselves distant from God…or even closer to evil…but just right where we should be.
Well…it’s been another great visit with you today! I pray that you will have a very blessed Tuesday! Take care and I will hope to be back again tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
