Sitting in one of my favorite places today in St. Maarten…’Dawn Beach.’    It’s a beautiful morning, …but yesterday!  …but tomorrow!  …BUT WHAT ABOUT TODAY?

Was yesterday cruel and painful?  Cast all your cares upon Him, He cares so much about you.

Are you afraid of the mountain you have to climb or the valley you must endure tomorrow?  The Lord your God is with you, holding your right hand, saying to you fear not, I will help you.

Lean into the Lord’s prayer.  Our Lord teaches us about TODAY!

…give us this day our daily bread

…do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning, it’s time to sing your song again…

Today, I simply sat in the quiet, focused on my Savior and Healer.  I gazed upon an ocean representing endless waves of past frustrations, fears and hurts, but beyond it I fixed my eyes on what TODAY holds.  The sun rose on ‘Dawn Beach.’  The Son awakened my soul this day.   I captured these pictures for you.   He did this for me and He is also doing it for you.   Be encouraged my friend.   ‘Weeping may last through the night, but JOY comes in the morning.’

Let me be singing when the evening comes.

Today, Lord Jesus, keep my eyes fixed on you, the author and finisher of my faith.  Let nothing stand before me or against me.  You have provided something better for those who put their trust in you.  Let my heart burst out and sing forth your praise for you are a faithful God and your mercies are new every morning.

Great Is Your Faithfulness!
