Morning Sky

Morning sky awakes

Gray, then red, orange, and white

Time for joyful praise!

Psalm 108:1 – 5 NASB

My heart is steadfast, O God;
I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my soul. Awake, harp and lyre;
I will awaken the dawn! I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; and I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your lovingkindness is great above the heavens, and Your truth reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and Your glory above all the earth.

Transitions: Beauty for Ashes

There are times when I go to my secret place

To worship and seek God’s face

I find myself inspired by the beauty of His grace.

As I create the images He reveals, i often wonder how

These not so talented hands can respond with ease

To produce images such as these.

He quietly reminds me He makes all things beautiful in His time.

Eccleciastes 3:11

14 Days of Blessings: Day 7

Today I wish you resurrection.

The beauty of this season is the hope that the end of something is approaching and we have something new to look forward to. That is resurrection.

This year may have been extremely challenging for you, but we have this hope…He who began a good work in us is faithful to complete it at the coming of Jesus (Philippians 1:6).

Jesus has come. He brought goodness, mercy, love, and grace with Him. He raised our hopelessness from the dead. His birth was the beginning of a resurrected life for us.

He came to give us access to the One who is able to do more than we could ever ask or think. He is the creator of heaven and earth and nothing is impossible with Him. Let Him resurrect your hope, your joy, your peace, and your love. Today is a new day…a new beginning.

Rise Blessing

Being joyful can be difficult when life’s demands seem to stretch us to our limit, but we have assurance that we can have fullness of joy when we seek the presence of the Lord (John 15).

I hope you find time each day to spend with the One who loves you deeply. He is waiting to give you more joy than you ever imagined possible.
