imagination is my friend again

The single greatest wonder to me is the reality that God never gives up on me. No matter what has gone before, a new day dawns. He is the God of the eternal Second Chance, even in our darkest hour.

I have lost count how many times I have been forgiven and given a chance at a new start. I have lost count how many times a dream has been put to death—only to be resurrected. I have lost track of the number of times I’ve felt like giving up, but God has, by his mercy and grace, instilled my spirit with a sense of fresh hope.

Today is one of those days for me. Imagination is my friend again. I cannot tether the wind of his Spirit; I can only let it carry me away.

The wonder is: any day can surprise anyone with new birth. 

Overwhelm us, Lord, with your never-ending grace.
