New every morning.

"In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation."
- Psalm 5:3

There is something so sacred about the stillness of the morning.

The glow of a candle.

The worn pages of God's Word that speak new life to me each morning.

Maybe you're like me. My mornings set the tone for the rest of my day.
I think God intended it that way, for us to put our to-do lists and busyness aside at the start of the day and focus on the One who has given us a clean slate. He has given us a new day - a chance to start again.

"Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
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.
I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.'
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord."
- Lamentations 3:21-26
