Coffee for Your Heart- Morning Prayer

Summer Camp Day two Watercolor peach-Assignment one

Morning Prayer

By Susie Teramura

 

Thank you for,

A new day

A day where

You are,

And where You

Have already been,

Your footprints

Are all over it,

For you have prepared

The way for me,

You promise to

Go ahead of me,

And to make

My path clear,

To make the crooked,

Straight

To be light,

In my dark

My unknown,

Known by You,

My questions answered,

And held in

Your strong arms.

This is the day

You have made,

You have fashioned it

With Your hands,

And thought through it

With Your mind,

And You promise

To walk through it

With me,

Helping me through

The rough patches,

Holding my hand in

The scary places,

And when the road clears,

And the view starts

To look beautiful,

You hoist me up

So I can have a better look,

To behold the good

And soak there,

You remind me

That this is where

We are headed,

And that this glimpse

Is just that,

A glimpse,

A taste,

An appetizer,

A preview

Of what’s to come,

And You tell me again

Better things are ahead,

And that the best is yet to come.

Because there is

Always more of You.

And You are taking me

To my perfect home,

With You.

This new day

Is another chapter

In the story

Of our journey

Another page that says

You are faithful

And will be faithful

To the end.

 

Psalm 118:24

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.

 

Isaiah 30:21

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

 

Luke 3:5

Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth.

 

Deuteronomy 31:8

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

 

John 14:1-4

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God [a]; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

  2. So true ‘another chapter in the story of our journey together’ – He is such a personal God – though He loves us all – we are each individually so precious to Him. Thanks for sharing beautifully again…

  3. Susie,
    I just love this line — hoist me up for a better look toward the future — brilliant! I’m resting my thoughts there and really, doesn’t he want us to look toward to the future with hope, anticipating the good things ahead? Every experience we go through is purposed by him and yes, as we turn each page, he will be faithful to the end! Beautiful! xo
