This beautiful flower is just like its name. At night it closes, perhaps to keep in the moisture, perhaps to keep out damaging insects. Then with the light of dawn, it opens its petals and appears in all its glory! The name Morning Glory actually refers to over 1000 species of flowers that do this same thing. The species pictured has blossoms shaped like funnels and come in purple, pink or white. They grow on vines that climb all over a fence or trellis.
Today’s verse looks to the morning, not only as the start to a new day, but also to the hope of God’s unfailing love. It is a hope that is never disappointed as God is faithful to all HIs promises. Our trust is well placed in His unfailing love. No other love is so constant. No other love is so wide, long, high or deep as His love (Eph. 3:18). And He demonstrates His unfailing love for us by showing us the way we should go. His love guides and protects in that brand new day.
The word of his unfailing love may not always be found in my circumstances. The word of His unfailing love may not always be found in my feelings. The word of His unfailing love is most consistently found in the Bible. Starting my day with the reminders of His love reassures me that He is there. He is waiting for me to wake up so He can show me again. Because I can trust His love, I can entrust to Him my life!
Thank you Lord, that Your love never fails me.
