Much like the song I remember from childhood, Isaiah reminds us to, "Rise and shine and give God the glory!" Whether in winter when the mornings are darker or other times when the rain and clouds create an overcast start to the day, we can rise and shine. The light that we need to fill our lives with hope is here! Jesus has not only come to earth, He has died and been risen so that we can be forgiven. Each day holds great possibilities for our lives because He is risen and shining. We should rise and shine in Him!
Rise and shine because Jesus has risen for you!
Thank You for the new start each morning. Help me to rise and shine each and every day as I reflect the love and forgiveness that Jesus has provided for me. Through Jesus, the risen Savior, I pray amen.
