Lately, (and mostly because it's summer in Phoenix and if you are not up early, it's way to hot to be outside) I have been fascinated by the sunrise. Aside from the beauty of it, I love the beautiful picture that it paints in our lives. It is a picture of second chances, a picture of newness, a picture that reminds us of God's faithfulness to do a new thing.
I'm not sure what time the sun rises where you are, but can I encourage you to rise early one day, drive to a place where there are no obstructions and just breath it in. Take in all that the sunrise, the new light, the new day, the faithfulness of God has to offer.
I think you will be blessed.
I pray that the newness of each day would be an encouragement to you in all that you go through in life.
Enjoy a few of my sunrise moments and feel free to share some of yours!
"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
"Light is sweet, and it pleases the eyes to see the sun."
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
"His glory covered the heavens and his praise filled the earth.
His splendor was like the sunrise; rays flashed from his hand,
where his power was hidden."
"This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it."
