Indeed, A New Day!
By Paul Dawn
If there is one thing that I have learned over the years is that every day is a new day, a fresh start, a new beginning.
No two days are alike; each day is different, each with opportunities to walk with the Lord. There are choice’s to be made and the choices we make affect's all those around us.
What we choose is very important. Do we choose to walk in the ways of the Lord, to yield our life afresh each day to be led of the Lord, to reach out and minister to others, to encourage, exhort, lift up others or do we choose to wallow in ourselves and bring others down, rather than lifting them up in the Lord?
We are given opportunities each day to be vessels of life. To be poured out, to share the hope that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are given opportunities to encourage others, to lift them up, exhort them, to build them up in the faith.
We are given the opportunity to be a servant, to walk as the Lord walked, as a servant of all. We are giving the privilege of being a servant, which is so contrary to what the world says.
In serving, we are set free; our focus is returned to the Father, and we learn to be one with Him.
We are all a work in progress, constantly being changed, molded and conformed to the Lord, brought to the place that we begin to reflect the reality of who He is, so that when others see us, they see the Christ within.
They see a reflection of hope!
We are given the opportunity each day to draw strength from the Lord, from the Word.
Each day we have an opportunity to walk with our Father, giving out of what He has given us, sharing the new life that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ with others.
Every day is indeed a new day!!
