Every morning God blesses me with something new. Which reminds me...yesterday my friend Linda and I were driving through town and we were behind a Jeep vehicle with the tire on the back, and the tire cover had these words on it--"Your mercies are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness." Oh, how true it is! Every morning we wake up and God is with us. So, this morning I was picking up things in the living room, and I came across the birthday card my cousin had sent to me last November. I still had the card laying around after all these months because Jeanette liked it and said she wanted to scrapbook it, but she hadn't yet. So there it was this morning still sitting on the small table beside my comfy chair. I picked it up to put it somewhere and then I paused to read the poem on the front of the card. This is what it said--
Always remember when God made you
He did so with a purpose and a plan.
He saw all your days before you lived them
and placed over you the covering of His protective love.
He has allowed nothing to come into your life
that has not first been screened through that love.
His hand remains upon you to this very day.
He calls you by name.
You are His beloved child...
the apple of His eye...
the delight of His heart.
Today you in the exact place He wants you to be,
and tomorrow He will be with you
as He has always been--
in goodness, in kindness, in faithfulness.
