Joy Comes With The Morning

“Sing praise to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name.  For his anger is but for a moment, and is favor is for a lifetime.  Weeping may last for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” (Psalm 30:4-5)).

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a morning person.  With a little help from a cup or two of coffee, I try to approach the new day with some level of excitement.  From either my bedroom window or in my back yard, I can watch the sunrise, which at this time of year, is about 5:45 am.

I guess the thing I like best about the beginning of the new day is that I’ve got the chance to start fresh.  As the Psalmist wrote, no matter what happened yesterday/last night, we can approach the new day with joy. Our God is a God of second chances, and how often we take that for granted.

Over the next few days, pray about someone who needs a second chance from you.  Offer it, as much for you as for them.  It might just bring a renewed joy to both your lives.

Well, I’m off to see the sunrise!  Have a blessed day.
