#fridayfootprints – Friday 15th July 2022

Seeking newness, I stand and greet the morning.

As a dewdrop in the dawn is clutched by new flower buds, so I wait for the presence of the Holy Spirit that I may clasp Him to my chest and let Him cleanse me.

I can feel the coolness in the air and the damp cold seeps into my bones from the lingering winter air. The hairs on my arms stand up and on the back of my neck, I can feel His breath of whispers. I welcome the feeling, drawing it in, drawing Him in. Deeper and deeper, until I can feel deep down in the pit of my stomach something genuine and honest, and I am immersed in His peace.

This is the purity I wait for every morning!

I feed on it as sustenance to use through each task that beckons in the day ahead.

This is my “…screw your courage to the sticking place …” of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. But it isn’t courage I stick there. It is knowledge, it is faith, that through the Holy Spirit, God is with me and in me for all that lies ahead, and I am anointed by His presence and His words.

Greet Him in the ‘dew of the dawn’. Live each day afresh and renewed in faith.
