Who knows what a day will bring forth?
For the past week, I’ve become aware of how precious each day is. I put out the flag (as usual), but I see things differently today. Because of the time change, everything looks strange.
We walk to school as the sun rises.
Illuminated by a new light, a pathway clears through the forest. It’s a new day, and I witness it.
“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118: 24)
As I look out into the forest–in that new light–I remember that God’s mercies are new every morning. I remember the prophet Isaiah speaking out on behalf of the Lord.
He writes, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:19)
I want to perceive the new thing today. I want to find that way in the desert, that stream in the wasteland.
