The dawn of another day

sunrise

"Thy mercies have brought me to the dawn of another day,
Vain will be its gift unless I grow in grace,
increase in knowledge,
ripen for spiritual harvest.
Let me this day know Thee as Thou art,
love Thee supremely,
serve Thee wholly,
admire Thee fully.
Through grace let my will respond to Thee,
knowing that power to obey is not in me, but
that Thy free love alone enables me to serve Thee.
Here then is my empty heart,
overflow it with Thy choicest gifts,
Here is my blind understanding,
Chase away its mists of ignorance.
O ever watchful Shepherd,
lead, guide, tend me this day.."
The Vally of Vision

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
