“Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.”
It is the space of time, when all is felt coming forward but not seen. When the miracle of each day’s new beginnings sends messages and opportunities.
“When our prayers are answered” Joan Chittister writes in The Breath of the Soul, “we know only one thing for sure: the challenge of life now is to live differently. And it will be through prayer that we discover how to do that. Then we come to prayer free of the desires that bind us, free to live life in God, free to choose trust over certainty – which really means to choose God over self.”
We give thanks for this new day and ask for blessings in our lives that illuminate the dawn.
