I LOVE Mondays for the same reason I love New Year’s. I love the freshness of it– the newness of it. I agree with LM Montgomery when she wrote,
“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”
As I was working in the kitchen today, though, it seemed as though God was speaking directly to me, asking why I don’t believe Him when He says His mercies are new every morning?
Why am I so excited to start fresh on those special times– a new week, a new year– but I am so slow to let go of my failures, frustrations, and fears on a daily basis. Do I not trust that God’s mercies are new for me? Do I now realize that His grace is sufficient for me day by day?
