Debt or Investment

by Mark Weinrich

When I allow heartaches
to bleed into my day,
I stain the sunrise black
with unbelief. I bury 
opportunities for change,
sowing sadness, miring
myself with emotional debt.

Yet when I invest and greet 
this day with gratitude
I recall God’s goodness
and His faithfulness.
There is no circumstance,
no burden that will surprise
my Lord. Nothing that
the sufficiency of His grace
cannot cover, nothing
no matter how unexpected
we can’t face together.
