every little moment
he hears, helps, saves and then oohs and aahs

before I charge ahead into the new day

With each new dawn, life delivers a package to your front door, rings your doorbell, and runs.   —Charles Swindoll

DSC09999I like this quote by Swindoll. Even though I am sad to see the Holiday Break come to an end, I thank God for the gift of a new day. I want to live today well, but I can’t do it on my own. I need God’s help and presence. So before I grit my teeth and barrel forward, I give my attention to Psalm 130, verse 6:

My soul waits for the LORD

more than watchman wait for the morning,

more than watchman wait for the morning.

As I read this, I realize that there is an even greater gift than the package of a new day. It is the LORD, his hope, his forgiveness, his help, his presence and his love in my life. What a gift the morning light is, with its promise of life and a new day to live. But greater still is the LORD, the maker and deliverer of the package in which I rejoice.

So, before I charge out the door into a new day . . .

My soul waits for the LORD.
