Sun has risen, day
Quickly descends. Must rise: not
let it slip unseen.
In the beginning, the sun arose in the wintry sky;
as the day brightened, it chased away the deep
dark hours of the lingering night.
In the beginning, the new fallen snow sparkled
beneath the gleaming sunlight
as if glittering diamonds were
scattered on the frozen white surface.
And soon a lone hare and a squirrel
hopped and scampered about
creating crisscrossing paths
across the white barren land.
In the beginning the oaks, the elms,
and the maple trees,
stripped bare of their garments
of resin-scented autumn leaves,
stood guard over this silent scene
where, in the end, there remains
a gentle quietness across the drifts
of whiteness gleam.
In the beginning a searching
journey starts from a wistful
heart and leads the soul to a
place of restful peace.
Pray in the morning and in the quiet interludes of the day;
Release to God all your cares and your worries along the way.
Enter and remain in God’s holy presence
Surrounded by his unchanging love and
Saturated with his all amazing grace.
Internal struggles that only he understands,
Now alleviated by his unseen yet compassionate hand.
Goodness and mercies, he has kept in store
Filter softly down in a warm sunlit shower.
Open heart and open mind to hear his word
Remembering he is God: Jesus is Savior and Lord
Who abides in you and promises to forever stay.
Advance and step now into the unknown future of this day
Remembering and trusting in him as you go;
Doubting never that God is everlastingly faithful.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (Holy Bible English Standard Version):
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean
on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge
him and he will make straight your paths.”
I pressed onward and
reached up high: I had hoped to
touch the vaulting sky.
