Morning by Morning, August 28 - Awake to Grace
 Good morning, Lord Jesus. I speak out Your name and awaken to Your grace.  ... I hear You writing a new song in my spirit this morning.  ... 
I awake
To Your grace
To seek Your face
Here, in my heart
Here, at the start
Of this new day
I arise
I come up high
My spirit flies
Here, in my heart
Here, at the start
Of this new day
I will go
Down the path You show
Where Your Spirit flows
Here, in my heart
Here, at the start
Of this new day
 Lord, it's so good to awake to grace. It's so good to know I have a clean slate and a fresh start, that my sins are forgiven and my heart is clear, that I'm so welcome in Your embrace to begin my day in the very Presence of God. "Who will ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in His holy place? Those who have clean hands and pure hearts.... Such is the company of those who seek Him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob" (Psalm 24:3-6). By Your tender mercies and the power of Your grace, I have clean hands and a pure heart before You. "If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation:  everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!" (2 Corinthians 5:17) You're forever inviting me to "approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that (I) may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).  I need You every hour, every moment of every day. And You're always here with me, welcoming me and embracing me and reminding me I can awake to grace every day. "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!" (Lamentations 3:22-23) In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
