Always New Every Morning


After I had a baby, almost every morning I always found new things from my baby.  Sometime ago, in the early morning I was so amazed to see him began open his eyes. Not too wide but it has made ​​me amazed and thrilled.  My husband and I saw it with feelings of gratitude and happiness. My husband said softly, “What another great God’s grace in this morning and there will be another God’s grace and blessing to him which will always be present in all of our morning. And please remember, not merely to our son but to us as well. So, do not ever forget to give thanks to God.”

My beloved friends, in our life we always want to something new. Why do we always read the newspaper every morning, watching news on television or searching through internet? Because we always want to know the latest news and what is become a trending topic today. When we go to the bakery, we always look for the new and fresh bread. We all always love something new. God knows it, and behold that He promised new blessings every morning.

What do we think about when we wake up every morning? Whether we instantly think of our fully work schedule today? Griping and thinking about our unresolved problems? Or we are preoccupied with so many things so we forget to give thanks for the God’s blessings this morning? Would be a pity if we wake up every morning besides thinking about our busyness, we do not think and feel God’s grace and blessings that always new every morning.  every morning? Yes! God’s word said every morning. This means there is grace from God poured out down when we are wanted to start a new day. Look how beautiful we living with God. Once we wake up, there is God’s grace that instantly greets us. He longs to bless us with all the best that comes from Him alone. That is God’s promise. But unfortunately we may not be aware of and missed all of that because we tend to start a new day with the thinking about a stack of problems, our mind full of restlessness, grumbling and so on.

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentation 3:21-23)

The writer who wrote this verse really knows where he should direct his focus. He fully realizes that God’s faithfulness was not limited and so great for us. God’s grace is so, is endless, and always new every morning. Not only grace and blessings but God always gives us a new hope so we should not hesitate to put our hope in Him.

As human beings we may have doubts about all the goodness and grace of God promised and provided for us. Let us now examine one part of the Bible to prove what God promised and provided.  Let’s open the book of Psalms chapter 103:

  • God forgives all our sins and heal our diseases (Verse 3)
  • redeems our life from the pitand crowns us with love and compassion (Verse 4)
  • Satisfies your desires with good thingsso that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.(Verse 5)
  • The Lord works righteousnessand justice for all the oppressed (Verse 6)
  • He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel (Verse 7)
  • The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love (Verse 8)
  • He will not always accuse,nor will he harbor his anger forever (Verse 9)

And there are many more God’s promises in the following verses. If the verses above still less convincing us, let we open one passage the book of Isaiah, it was clearly written which states that those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They, or we, would like an eagle flying overcome the storm with a strong pair of wings, will not even easily tired despite facing severe storms.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

Romans 8:32 also show how precious we are in His eyes. How great His love to us. How great God’s yearning to always provide the best to us.

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

My beloved friends, what about our morning today? How we treat our beautiful morning? If we woke up then our mind has been filled with every kind of life problems? Filled with disquiet because there are so many unsolved tasks? Or we spend time a while just sitting on the bed and be grateful through prayer for the opportunity sipping the fresh morning air, give thanks to the breath of life that God has given to us, enjoying the warmth of the morning sun, be grateful we still have a chance to listening a beautiful songbird and said to God, “Dear Lord in heaven, thank you for this beautiful morning. Thank you for the opportunity to live and feel how beautiful and great is Your love”?

Right now, allow me to encourage you to always make sure ourselves to remember all of this every morning, and give thanks to all God’s goodness when we woke up. Keep reminding our soul and mind to realize how good God is, never forget the grace which He lavished on us, never forget a new grace that He bestowed to us as a tremendous grace to us. Keep Preserve so that we will be able to continue to grow with an increasingly strong faith. It is good to know what God’s blessings are, but please do not just to know, Let’s continue to give thanks every day and make sure we feel His goodness, and pay attention it all in order to be real and alive in us. By taking a few moments to give thanks, will make us more aware that God is always present in our lives with the grace which is always new every morning and His compassions never fail even in the midst of difficulties we face there is always grace and hope because He is ruling above of all forever and ever. Amen.

With those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all. (Psalm 103:18-19)

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)


Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
there is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not
as thou hast been thou forever will be

Great is Thy faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
all I have needed Thy hand hath provided
great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest
sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside

  5. It is amazing when a young one opens their eyes to the new light of day. In much the same way, it is thrilling when a new Christian’s eyes are first opened to the spiritual truths of God through Jesus…

    Thanks for sharing this post!


  6. Oh my goodness Karina, Lamentations 3:21-23 is such a beautiful scripture that gives such hope in regards to a Gods love and faithfulness toward us. All these scriptures are fulfilling to my soul during this time in my life. Thanks for sharing Karina, this is a very encouraging post for me.

    Be Blessed!


    • Dear sis LaTrice,
      Your are much welcome 🙂 Thank you very much for your lovely comment. I am so blessed if this post could fulfill your soul 🙂 many blessings to you and have a great day.

  7. Yes it’s God’s will for us Karina to give thanks regardless of what happens to us in life (1 Thessalonians 5:18) because He helps us as we go through it and for this we can be very grateful. (Isaiah 43:1-3)

    No He does not cause our suffering or expect us to be Happy Clappy about it but He does strengthen us so we can endure it and intervenes when needed, than works it all out for our good. I have been sharing about this Truth in my recent Posts as both Ron and myself as you know have been experiencing a violent Storm in our lives but also God’s intervention.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of men.

    Yes I do give thanks for the pinched nerve in my Spine but not for the pain, I’m thankful because God went ahead so I would have help when it was needed and I have no doubt He will do the same for Ron…. God is good all the time!

    How very Blessed you are Karina with you little one and how blessed he is to have you as his Loving Mum, I just wish I could give him a big (((Hug))) and you too.
