Be Still

I awoke this morning with my brain spinning. I hadn't even risen yet and I was feeling frustrated. I spent some time in prayer, did my devotions, and yet did not feel at peace. I got up, hurriedly started the laundry, and got ready for the day. Then I went into the living room for a moment to catch my breath.

I sat on the couch staring out the east window thinking... and watching the sun rise. Glorious! Absolutely glorious! God's mercies are new each morning and yet once again I had forgotten that. When will I learn? Each day is a new beginning and it is our blessed Saviour who bestows us with them.

I stepped out into the icy morning air to see more clearly the sun coming up behind our Norway maples, and breathed in the sub zero (celcius) air. "Oh Lord, give me strength to get through yet another very busy day," I prayed. He put it all back into perspective for me.

"Those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength..." Isaiah40:31a
