Morning Praise: Unwrapping a Special Gift

I awoke this morning to a gift laid in front of me. There it sat neatly wrapped, addressed to me. Such a loving thought, someone taking time to give a gift just for me. As I peeled back the first piece of wrap, I felt the warm rays of morning light on my face. With the removal of the second piece of wrap, I heard the birds singing their morning song. With the next piece a light breeze began to blow. Piece after piece came off until there before me was the gift of a brand new day. I took a deep breath and praised God for the gift of this new day; the gift of another day of life.

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. – Lamentations 3:22

  1. Yes all we have to do is unwrap what we expect and don’t expect by faith trusting God for His results.

  2. We have to be very thankful for each new day. It is a huge gift fill lots of the expected and unexpected.

  3. Amen! This is beautiful! We are so lucky to have a Daddy who sends us love letters in the sunrise. He shared the soundtrack with the birds and the other animals. He is so beautiful!!
