Yesterday was a really bad, rotten day! A day wrapped in the trappings of petty issues, “should have been,” guilt and “why me”. A day when the tears fell without restraint and my body and soul cried to God about the injustice of life. That was yesterday.
I rose early on this new day in hope of quiet solitude before the onslaught of new demands. I watched as God painted His world with the first touch of light. The clarity of the day is shrouded in the muted hues of sunrise, yet His splendor will continue to impregnate the sky bringing clarity and life. His mercies are new every day.
As my weary soul sips on the lifeblood of morning coffee, I open His word. In perfect divine sovereignty, He leads me to Psalms 119:37.
“Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things and revive me in Your ways.”
Oh God, turn my eyes and thoughts from the trappings of worthless self-pity. Breathe your life into me so that I may be revived!
