From the moment we wake up in the morning, a lot of things can fill our mind, call our name, and demand our attention. But one thing is sure: time spent first with God, focusing our hearts and minds on what matters most in this life, is time never wasted. And it's always worth more than we can fully see. Rich treasures of strength, wisdom, and peace, filling our hearts and lives await us.
Yet many times the reality is that our day begins, and we find ourselves still burdened down with the same problems and worries from yesterday. Spirits heavy, thoughts swirling, before our feet even touch the ground.
There’s so much in this life we can feel anxious about, even when we know God’s truth and believe that He’s in control. It can still be a daily battle in our hearts, in our minds.
Today is a gift straight from His hand. And He promises to bring good in whatever we journey through. He’s the very reason we can live with joy right in the battles and have peace that is unexplainable to the world.
As sure as the sun comes up every morning, we can know that God's mercy and grace always surround, He is never far away, but always close.
I’m resting there this morning, on this new day, hope you are too.
