Every morning, after I rise, I ask what act of Grace I will do today. My daily study of wisdom increases my understanding of the parables of Jesus and the enigma of the Christ. Perhaps, the only act of Grace I can do is to share God’s Wisdom, not my own. When I awaken, I remember that God’s Glory and Grace will be with me throughout the day; God’s Light shines through me and sharing this light, this Grace.
I awaken from the darkness of night to a wonderful morning star of light shining through my bedroom window. I am humbled by the beauty of God’s new morning. I ask if I will continue to be a gracious blessing to those I meet in the upcoming day, even though I may be suffering inside. But my thoughts quickly turn to my trust in God, and I read from Isaiah 51: “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.”
And I begin my day of Grace.
