It’s a Dew Perspective

Dew on lantana

It was the dew. It caught my eye, made me blink, as the early morning sun glistened over the shimmering landscape.

I was simply blow drying my hair, gazing out the bathroom window at the peaceful backyard as I do daily. On this particular Sunday morning the view made me smile. The beauty overwhelmed me.

The heavy dew refreshed everything and caused it to shine brightly, reflecting light on the grass, flowers, bushes, fence posts, Adirondack chairs. I couldn’t help it. I had to get an up close view. Wearing my church dress and high-heeled shoes, I trapsed through the drenched grass to snap photos of the lantana. The wet grass clippings stuck to my heels, and I didn’t care. The sweet journey was worth the effort.

My heart was enlivened, reminded me of the reassuring verses in Lamentations 3:23-24.

 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every  morning; great is your faithfulness.

What a sweet, dew perspective. No matter what we are going through in life, God’s “dew” of mercy, grace and love is fresh every morning. What hope. What encouragement.

Another way to refresh your soul first thing in the morning, before you even get out of bed, is to download the FREE Proverbs 31 Ministries First 5 mobile app on your phone. Just search in the App Store on your Iphone or Ipad (Android available also) for “First 5.”

An alarm is built right inside the app. Once you set the alarm and swipe it in the morning, you are taken straight into God’s Word for a five-minute inspiring Bible teaching.  One chapter of the Bible is highlighted per day, in order. Currently the book of Genesis is being studied. The book of John was just finished and can all be found in the “Archives” tab.  Amazing and profound Weekend Wrap-up summary videos are featured each Saturday. In 3 ½ years, with just five minutes each morning, you will have read the entire Bible. You can even purchase the “Experience Guide” journal from Proverbs 31 Ministries to enrich the book of the Bible being studied.

As Proverbs 31 Ministries President and friend Lysa TerKeurst says, “We must exchange whispers with God before shouts with the world.”

What hope. Just like the fresh dew in the morning, may we refreshen our hearts daily by going to God’s Word first.

Reflect:

–When have you felt “dried up,” in need of refreshment or morning “dew” for your soul?

–How will you look differently at the morning time and dew?
