New Every Morning.

March 10, 2008

His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).

Not used. Not just washed & wrung out. Not a hand-me-down. Not recycled. Not rusting on the inside corners. Not just wiped down & polished. Not just repainted.

New. Straight out of the box. The tag’s still on. The lid pops when you open it. Crisp as the blank pages of a journal. Stiff with want of wear. Still squeaky. The plastic seal is unbroken. It fizzes every time.

New. Like it’s never been used before. Like it’s the first time He’s giving it.
