Being an early bird, I witness the wonder of dawn most days of summer. The sun rises, encouraging the birds to chatter, and then the spectacle of colours chasing each other across the sky begins.
The variability is incredible, some times it’s all kinds of blues, pale blue, cerulean, azure, and then onto sky blue itself. On other days you see a dance of orange, salmon, coral and red. It always takes my breath away, I could watch it for hours, but sadly it only lasts for minutes.
Psalm 108:2 says, ‘Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.’ (NIV) The morning is a brilliant time to be caught up in the majesty of God’s creation, pray, and write a little while the rest of the house sleeps. What I witness each morning inspires my faith, bringing hope and life to mind for the rest of the day.
Quote Each dawn invites the hope we desire for the day.
Thank You, Lord, for the beauty of the dawn, for the freshness it brings to life. Amen.
If you haven’t seen the dawn for a while, organise to wake up in time to see it, and perhaps have a devotional time too.
