Good Morning everyone!! Before you do anything else, I want you all to take a minute to soak in all the mercy that is surrounding you right now. Master Oogwe in Kung Fu Panda once said “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery… but today is a gift; that’s why it is called the present”. Truer words have a turtle never said! Your ability to take that last breath you just inhaled was a whiff of grace that was extended to you. Think it not a light thing that you are among the living today.
Lamentations 3:22-23 - It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
You woke up today with a gift of mercy. And it wasn’t just some rollover package that’s being used up over time until you have reached your quota, but every morning we are replenished with new opportunities to glorify God. Oh, how God desires us to love Him! He gives us opportunities to make it right with Him and those around us on a daily basis. This hope encourages us to take advantage of God’s compassionate heart and make full use of His love. So no matter what was written in our history, it is what you do from now on that will determine your end.
So welcome to a new day. Welcome to a new beginning.
