It’s a new day filled with new opportunities and new joys. Sure, there are new challenges to be conquered and new obstacles. But there is hope in this new day. There is peace in this new day. There is joy that is coming. There is still kindness to shared and love to be given. There is good in this new day, it is here.
That may sound a bit optimistic. It may sound like I am reaching a bit far. But if we start our day dreading what is coming, we see the dread. If we begin our day with all the problems we must face, we will see only problems. There is good in this day. It may be small glimpses of good. But there is always good. There is hope in this new day that is filled with opportunities for so much more. We can choose to see our problems that are ahead or we can choose to see the good.
I am not saying this day will be the best day ever – although, it is not out of the question. You never know what good awaits. But I am saying that we should be looking for all that God is doing in our lives. Our day may actually get better. Our day may improve when we see that God has not left us and there is joy in this day. Our day may show a glimmer of hope when we realize we are not in this alone. Our day may shine bright when we choose to love others and share kindness. Good actually does await. It really depends on you. God is already doing his work. Will you choose to see it?
May you see the good. May you see the glimmers of hope. May you experience the joys that await in this brand new day. So much awaits. May we live looking for God in this new day.
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
2 Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplications!
3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with you,
so that you may be revered.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
6 my soul waits for the Lord
more than those who watch for the morning,
more than those who watch for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord!
For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
and with him is great power to redeem.
8 It is he who will redeem Israel
from all its iniquities.
