I am grateful for newness. I am grateful that each minute is new, and if that isn't good enough, then there is a new week, a new month, and well, heck. If none of those work, then we just wait for the new year and see if that doesn't do the trick.
The fact is that no matter what old thing I bring into each moment, it is STILL NEW. Still fresh, and there's another moment coming before this one even has a chance to get stale.
Praise the Lord for His mercy. It is new NOW. His fullness is overflowing now. And now. And I can grab hold of it NOW even if I didn't yesterday or this morning or 10 minutes ago. He is the reality of this minute.
