Fresh Start

I love mornings. The picture above is sunrise from my back deck. Each day brings a fresh start to a new day. I love that, especially after a day before which brought frustration, fatigue and failure. A new day offers new hope and possibilities. A new day ushers in the beginning of a new adventure.

Lamentations 3:22-23 echoes these thoughts:

"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."

Sometimes my computer gets cluttered with too much info and bogs down. To correct the problem I simply restart the computer and clean up the tangled data. A fresh start. 

What seems tangled in your life right now? Is it a frustrated relationship with a spouse, child, parent, co-worker or friend? Maybe finances are frustrating you. Maybe you are frustrated from dreams unrealized, health issues, lingering grief.

Whatever is bogging you down right now, be encouraged that God has given us a wonderful gift--daily opportunities to restart and refresh. No matter how difficult and cluttered life gets, we have the wonderful truth that God is good, and He loves us. Those are not just words. They have been proven time and time again via daily sunrises...

and the momentous Son Rise. 

So take a moment today and have a fresh start. Reboot your heart with the realization that you are deeply loved by the one who designed and created you. We are never alone. 

Great is His faithfulness!
