Freshly Renewed

“Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.” Psalm 90:14 (NIV)

Last night I cam home around 9:00 pm feeling washed up and worn out from being a sister, a friend, an employee, and a follower of Christ. I felt dried up with nothing to offer and wondered, “Lord, how can I move forward when I am feeling so dry and so exhausted?”

Immediately my heart went to Psalm 90:14 when the Psalmist prays for God to satisfy him in the morning with His unfailing love. I may not always love the mornings initially, but each morning is fresh, renewing, and brand new. Similar to the Lord’s love for us—the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases and His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness! (Lamentations 3:23)

No matter what yesterday brought, or how dried up you feel, each new day is a new opportunity to say “Lord, here I am! I want to rest in your unfailing love and in return I want to choose joy, praise your holy name, love you wholeheartedly, and love your children. Not out of obligation, but because you satisfy and renew me, and morning by morning, your mercies awaken my soul. Would you show me what you have for me today?”
