It’s a new day, it’s a new moment, it’s a new you that is being transformed daily into His image and likeness, so “arise and shine for your Light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you,” for His goodness and His mercies are new every day!
Awake, awake from your slumber, you who sleep, for Christ is the Light of your new dawn! Arise and shine, it’s a new day and you have never been this way before!
Arise and shine, O ye who sleep, for the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings just for you! Arise and shine O ye who sleep, for you shall arise and sing again you who slumber, for the time is near and Your King is calling for you to arise.
Father, we praise You and we worship You, for we shall be a crown of glory and a royal diadem in Your hand.
Thank You, Father, that we shall no longer Forsaken or Desolate, for we are now called Hephzibah which means we are now Your people and like Ruth, we can now say that You are our God.
Thank You, Father, that we now dwell in the land of Beulah, the land where You take a delight in us and we You.
Thank You, Father, for shining Your Light of Glory upon and in us. Thank You, Father, that You are married to the backslider, and we thank You, for extending Your loving-kindness and tender mercies towards us.
