Day 30: Mercies anew.

June 13, 2013

Last night, after a rather rough day of keeping mental tallies of everything gone wrong and everything outside my control (i.e., everything, haha) and so many apologies that they started to sound trite, this thought came to mind:

Tomorrow is a new day.  His mercies are new every morning.

The finish of one day and the anticipation of a new day is a gift of grace.  It’s a reminder that there are new beginnings and fresh starts.  Today can become yesterday.  God does not hold yesterday’s repented-of sins over my head tomorrow.  No need to dog ear yesterday’s record when the perfect Judge says, “All clear.”

What would motherhood and marriage be without brand new days and an all-clearing God?

Happy 30 days, baby Ian.  And happy 30+ days, JE.  Hehe.

Every morning that breaks
There are mercies anew
Every breath that I take
Is your faithfulness proved
And at the end of each day
When my labors are through
I will sing of Your mercies anew

(Sovereign Grace Music)
