New Every Day

New:  Linking up at and at and at

Lord, I want to be new every day.  I see how You have made me new already.  You renew me.  Every morning, remind me to sing, "This is the day that the Lord hath made.  I will rejoice and be glad in it."  It is only when I acknowledge Your presence and Your sovereignty that things can happen.  That I can be changed.  Sometimes, I fall into the mistaken thought process that Your work is done.  But You are not finished with me.  It is ego that tells me, I have nothing left to work on.  That's a laugh.  I'm grateful that You are gentle with Your touch.  That You can point things out to me without condemnation.  I know now how to discern Your voice from that of the enemy.  You are a Lover of my soul.  You love me too much to leave me the way I am.  Help me to remember this as I deal with others, too, God.  Sometimes, I fall into that trap of believing that people are lost causes.  But You can make all things new.  Give me hope, God.  Help me to see with Your eyes.


  1. Beautiful sky! New every morning~so thankful for that!

  2. That cornfield seems enamored of the sky!


    Sky so high,
    Sky so blue,
    Tell me why
    I love you.

  3. Yes, sometimes I think of people as "lost causes" too. But then I also try to remember that we are all "lost" and "found". :)
    I came over from FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY today.
    Nice to *meet* you.

  4. I look at the beauty around me and do feel renewed. It uplifts and inspires me. Beautiful shots. Thanks for joining the Crazy Days of Summer photo challenge!
