Beginnings

I know a certain two year old boy who cherishes the start of every day. He sees the morning through fresh eyes and anticipates the day as the best one to live. This is such a lesson to me and perhaps to all of us. I don't ever want to forget what Jesus has done for us and carry His proven love with me daily. He is precisely the source of our hope that allows us to value the freshness of each day.

Start again with me in the morning and look at the day with fresh hope and excitement, no matter what stains or memories that challenge such perspectives and constructive anticipation. Let your schedule, your relationships, your commitments, all your endeavors be exposed to the light of God. If someone or something spoils your approach, you can always begin again tomorrow.

Ezekiel 39:8 (MSG)
8 "It's coming! Yes, it will happen! This is the day I've been telling you about.
