A Brand New Day

Every day is filled with opportunities and possibilities when you walk with the Lord.

The Bible teaches about new days when God says, “I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland” (Isaiah 43:19 NLT). And we are encouraged about how to live each day: “From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the LORD is to be praised” (Psalm 113:3).

There is a special place in Palm Desert CA where I often go to shoot the sunrise with my Nikon D810 and Sony A6000 cameras. I love this place and often capture the identical viewpoint of the sky and desert landscape with its evanescent light, swirling clouds, and xeriscape vegetation. No matter how many days I shoot images at this place, no two photographs are the same. The clouds are different colors and in different patterns in the sky. Sometimes there is an explosion of clouds and color. Other times it is like a sea of wispy clouds. And sometimes the sky is seemingly on fire with a rainbow of colors.

When I am out there for another day of photography in God’s creation at sunrise, I am reminded again that it is truly a brand new day. It’s a brand new day to love and serve the Lord. He will give me opportunities to represent Him as an ambassador where He shines His light and love in and through me to touch a lost and hurting world. The possibilities as we walk with the Lord are endless. Just when you least expect it, God does something more than you could have ever imagined — like the times when He provides miraculously for a need or works everything for good in an extraordinary way.

Oh I love to watch the Lord at work in a brand new day. You can always have hope because of the work of the Lord. That’s why we can praise His name from the rising of the sun to the time when it is setting.

So today, dear friend, remember that it is a brand new day. Love your Lord and serve Him with all your heart.

Dear Lord, thank You for the hope of this brand new day. We praise Your holy name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
