Morning Promises

by Mark Weinrich

I want to step into
God’s promises for my day,
no matter how long or
black the night 
whether I’m rested or weary.

As the sky exalts in rosy hues
He has gone before
sowing love and mercy
shining like the dew.

He has prepared peace 
and strength as we walk into 
the majesty of this day.

For He has plans
no matter what we face
to teach and to restore.

And in these breathless moments 
I can only shout for joy
knowing the victories
set in motion through
His resurrection dawn.
