Joy · Ordinary

another day…

Another day
sun coming up…
evening coming out…

A thought lingers… from something I heard on Monday…

Do we paint the sunrises or the sunsets that come up every day? No, they don’t just come up every day, they come up every minute somewhere in the world…

—John Piper, God Works for Those Who Wait for Him

Sunrises… sunsets… always happening somewhere in the world…

All coming out with joy… because of Him…

You make the going out of the morning
and the evening to shout for joy.
Psalm 65:8 ESV
This thought… of joy… wrapping the earth… every 24 hours… painted in colors of pink… purple… gold… and blue…  is just too much…
I want that joy… with each getting up… and going out… no matter where… or when…
I’m coming and going… all day long… several times a day… and I long to do it with shouts of joy… 
Lord… make my comings… and goings…
to happen with shouts of joy…
just because… of who You are…
You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 16:11 ESV
