This Dawn Will Endure
Dawn opens its sleepy eyes slowly
One at a time, softly blinking
To behold dimly the horizon in waking
Always amazed with the revealing
Impatient to see expanding light
So terribly long it could but dream of sight.
As it had been blind in the slumb’ring
The dawn is a seriously great metaphor!
The light increasing, the sun rising.
Well, here’s what “dawned” on me:
God ! That Jesus, my Savior lives!
The Son literally rising in my life!
We Jesus-followers all have our own special story about how Jesus “dawned” on us.
The sun also “sets”, and the love of The Son “sets” us to testifying of His Kingdom, of His saving grace, and of His great glory!
And we pray for those who haven’t truly seen the dawn.
Oh, Lord, let that Dawning spread wide, covering your people from horizon to horizon. Amaze them at Your revealing, Lord. Make them impatient to awaken. Make them to see that when the Dawning of Christ arrives, it will endure forever in their lives. Amen
Proverbs 4:18 – The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.
