Bet Your Bottom Dollar

"The sun'll come out...tomorrow,
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
There'll be sun."  (From "Annie")

His mercies are new each morning.  This is one of the verses that keeps me going. (Lamentations 3:23)  Even when I have those hard days, I know that His mercies are new each morning.  The sun is going to rise again.  Each day is a brand new opportunity to live in His grace and His will.  Every day is a fresh chance to do what I am supposed to do.

I can get through the hard days because I know they are temporary.  I know that the next day might be a little easier.  I know that after a good night's sleep things that seemed impossible the day before aren't so intimidating. 

I am learning the value of waiting.  Getting through.  Trusting more than doubting. 

Doubts come and go.  They do not define me.  They are annoying, yes, but temporary.  I am so very grateful for the dawn! 

"Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow,
You're only a day away!"

"Because of God’s tender mercy,
the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
and to guide us to the path of peace.”
Luke 1:78-79
