Lord,

I know it’s a new day. And I believe it. But it sure seems a lot like yesterday. And the day before that. And the day before that. And all the days before that.

But I’m not willing anymore to accept merely more of the same. Instead, I really want to experience that making all things new promise Jesus makes. Not just in my heart, but in my life so that others can see I’m actually more loving, more concerned about justice, more compassionate and more trusting of You regardless of what’s going on.  

So I’m all in with doing my part because I know You’re already doing Your part through all the mysterious ways You lodge Yourself right in the middle of my life and go to work doing for me what I know I can never do on my own.  

So let’s get started with making all things new. One step at a time. One day at a time. And doing every bit of it in the name, spirit and power of Jesus.

Amen.
