There is something significant about the start of a new day. The deck reshuffles. The cycle of life starts anew. We awaken to new opportunity.

Each day has its unique challenges and frustrations. But each new day is a fresh start, a chance to begin again. In a world so full of imperfection, new days are welcome occasions.

Each new day starts with beauty, with promise. The sunrise paints the sky as dawn ushers in another chance to live our best life.

The thing that is so beautiful about each morning is the consistency of God and His love for us. We do our best every day.

But many sunrises go unseen. We make mistakes. We fall short. And instead of making a fresh start, perhaps we despair. But God promises we can begin anew. His forgiveness is limitless.

What might be cause for shame and frustration has been redeemed for joy, peace and freedom. What is required is for us to request it, receive it, and embrace it.

Our hope is in the Lord. And although we may not make the best choices every day, He is there to steady us with His Grace and to motivate us with His Love. He is consistent every day. And every day he offers us a fresh opportunity to make new choices. Better choices. Redeeming choices.

The sunrise is a daily reminder that today is a day we can begin anew, and make choices rooted in the reality we can gain from seeing life from God’s perspective, the perspective of a new dawn.

“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
– Lamentations 3:22-23
