Every moment is but a new beginning...

Alarm clock sounds. A new day.

Coffee perks. A new pot.

Showers rain down. A new cleansing.

Scripture read. A new understanding.

Every single moment of our lives is but an ending and a new beginning.

That's comforting isn't it?
Knowing that what is in the here and now, won't be forever.
some moments we cling tightly to. Feeling and knowing God is a gift and we bask in those times.
other moments we can't wait to be free from what is facing us. Breathing and living are hard and we feel paralyzed.

Whether good or bad, every single moment is an ending and new beginning.

Chance after chance we have a choice to set God's kingdom in motion here on earth.

And if every moment is a new beginning, then grace covers those moments when we feel shame and remorse.
Grace covers moments when sin remained in us.
Grace covers moments when we can't see, hear, or taste the Father.

Lord, we come humbly before you.
Praying that earthly moments can and will be used for eternal moments.
We pray that in the moments ahead we can remember Micah 6:8, and 1 Peter 1:13, and Colossians 3:23, and Roman 12:2.
Because when we seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with you, moments slow and we see what matters.
Because when we prepare our minds for action, moments are intentional and filled with grace and love.
Because when we remember you in all our words and deeds, you're greater good is found in these moments.
Because when we pray for renewal of mind, we can be on guard for each moment ahead.

Thank you Lord for each moment.
Thank you Lord for preparing an eternal Heaven, which will be filled with perfect moments, perfect love and intimacy with you.
