God has created a new day, 

Silver and green and gold,

Live that the sunset may find us

Worthy his dreams to hold

(Marie Gaudette)

I sang this simple grace with my Girl Scout troop over and over. I didn’t think too much about what it meant then. But now, I find myself singing it and wanting it to be true.

I want to thank God for each new day and notice the beauty of it. I long to see Him in every situation. [inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”” suffix=””]I yearn to be in His Presence, consciously living with my heart and mind transformed by Him.[/inlinetweet]

I know I am only worthy of holding His dreams if I stay in His Presence all day. [inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”” suffix=””]I am only worthy because Jesus gave His life for me. Because of His grace and mercy.[/inlinetweet]

And so, along with this simple grace, I add Psalm 19:14

May the words of my mouth,

and the meditations of my heart,

be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD,

my strength and my redeemer.”

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”” suffix=””]Today is a new day, created by God. May I live in surrender to Him, in reliance on Him, and to glorify Him.[/inlinetweet]
