Summer Dawn

Her name is Summer Dawn.
One of her favorite scriptures is Jeremiah 32:17.
This summer has been a hard season for her
but her faith is still strong.

She knows that God, her personal God who created the heavens and the earth,
has everything under control--everything that she gives to Him.

And she gives it all--freely--
knowing that His arms are outstretched to her,
beckoning her to come and rest in Him,
calling her to the comforts of his royal robe which will hide her
from the enemy.

She need not be afraid for He is her Hiding Place.
The dawn of each new day,
each new season,
will burst forth with His love.

And with that, she is satisfied--more than satisfied.
She is alive and excited to live a new day in Him.

“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.  Jeremiah 32:17
