The first blessing we get each day is to see God bring the sun up. We have the opportunity each day to start with a thankful heart knowing that like the sunrise God’s love and mercy are new for us each day. Some days life and circumstances can be difficult and leave us in a stressed state of mind. Our heart and spirit can also be stressed and that in turn affects our actions and our lives. We can quickly find ourselves in a spiritual fog where we seem to be wandering in circles much like the Israelites when they left Egypt. We need to take advantage of God’s promise and start each day knowing that we have an open road in front of us and the blessings of a new day from God. May we make the most of it !
