Lord, I want to be new every day. I see how You have made me new already. You renew me. Every morning, remind me to sing, "This is the day that the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it." It is only when I acknowledge Your presence and Your sovereignty that things can happen. That I can be changed. Sometimes, I fall into the mistaken thought process that Your work is done. But You are not finished with me. It is ego that tells me, I have nothing left to work on. That's a laugh. I'm grateful that You are gentle with Your touch. That You can point things out to me without condemnation. I know now how to discern Your voice from that of the enemy. You are a Lover of my soul. You love me too much to leave me the way I am. Help me to remember this as I deal with others, too, God. Sometimes, I fall into that trap of believing that people are lost causes. But You can make all things new. Give me hope, God. Help me to see with Your eyes.
