It is a universal truth that mourning lasts but for the evening and that joy comes in the morning. Upon the dawning of a new day when our Creator paints those wide swatches of salmon pink upon the gray canvas of the dawn sky that those new mercies are created. They are mercies not left over from a day that is gone, nor are they mercies borrowed from a day that has not yet been created nor promised. Those new mercies are made uniquely for the new day that has been created. They are mercies that are there for the taking and are as unique to us as individuals as our thumb prints.
When I was a little girl in Girl Scouting, we were making a Mother’s Day gift. It was to be small keepsake picture that used my thumb print as the body of a mouse. I presented this small token to my Momma, and with great delight as if I had just presented her with a priceless masterpiece she hung this small wooden framed picture on a tack in the breakfast nook and where it remained until my parent’s estate was dissolved. I ran across this memento while unpacking my belongs. With great care did my Mother keep that reminder of the uniqueness of her daughter.
With even greater care does our Creator make the uniqueness of those mercies that are created for us with each new dawn. And with even a greater love than a mother for her child does our eternal parent love and care for us.
Be encouraged that whatever you may be facing at this moment in time new mercies will meet you right where you are at. The night can be long and intolerant and the pain never ceasing. Push through knowing that there are brand spanking new mercies waiting for you upon the dawn.
