A while ago, someone I follow on Twitter posted this image. I love it, even though I have no idea where it is from. I think it’s great.
One of the reasons I love it so much is because it reminds me of one of the most amazing characteristics of God – that His mercies are new every morning.
So often, I find myself worrying about things for a prolonged period, carrying burdens around and letting them get me down. Sometimes these are genuine concerns, things that it’s OK to be worried about. And sometimes, they are things which really I should not worry about.
But what’s amazing is that with God, every day is a new day. Every day is a chance to start again, to wake up cleansed by His love and grace and free to live in Him.
For me, that’s one of the things I love most about God. In a world which seems to remember everything I’ve done wrong, to keep a record of all my mistakes and all my failings, it’s amazing to know that God takes my brokenness and makes it beautiful, every day.
More than the morning coffee, that’s the best way to kick-start my day.
