"You're blessed when the tears flow freely. Joy comes in the morning."
Luke 6:21

Yesterday was an extremely rough day for me. And last night I wept like the scared child I once was.

She cast her hurtful words onto me...back to back...without a second thought. She didn't know that her words so harshly breathed life to the versed daggers she threw towards my heart. They cut me deep right at the threshold where my seeming inadequacies and childhood fears collided.

...morning by morning new mercies i see...

This morning I woke up with a new attitude. My heart wrenched and opened in new ways that brought forth joy-filled life. It is a new day. A beginning of new mercies, forgiveness, the releasing of fears and torments that have for some time now held me.

Today is my gift from Him. I may have felt faint and wounded yesterday, but He was there all along. He will mend my heart. With Him my heart shall faint not.

...yesterday is gone and new mercies abound.

I sat there amazed this morning reading this story...HIS STORY...it was sitting before me waiting to be soaked up and lived out. It was a grand story. A story that told of fullness and of a King who wants good things and has nothing but love for His children. It spoke of the fruit that will become ripened when sought after, and a love that is never ending. His grace and mercy. He is unfading. His words do not wound, but love.

This is why I am thankful for new mercies. He makes all things new. He takes away my fears and pain. He makes this seemingly broken daughter whole once more. He is mercy and grace and love entwined.

it is a new day...with no mistakes in it.

If you've struggled this week with your past fears creeping up on you, or feeling like the life you are currently living isn't enough, know this: You're not alone. The One who created you and I grants new mercies every morning to us. He gives freely of His grace and love. And He is the only one who can make you WHOLE.
