A New Dawn


By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us.  Luke 1:78 NRSV  

Early morning revelation is the best kind. I am on crunch time to get this book completed by the deadline so I have a reminder on my phone calendar to get up every day at 4:40 a.m. to write for thirty minutes before my alarm clock goes off at 5:15 a.m. to get ready for work. I struggle, but I get up and am on schedule with my writing.

One morning the Lord gave me revelation regarding a heavy weight that was on my shoulders at work the previous day. The weight disappeared after work so I assumed it was sign to seek new employment. While this may or may not be the case, the “pain” returned later in the evening as another familiar situation came to mind. The Lord revealed that I have been round this mountain way to long. It’s time to move forward to a new thing. As you enter into the dawn  of Autumn reflect on what new thing the Lord is calling you toward.


About DestaIsJoy

Desta is an African Amharic name meaning "joy". My spiritual father and former pastor has twin daughters and one's middle name is Desta. I latched on to that name once I knew the meaning and use it in one of my e-mail addresses and for my website: www.mydestaisjoy.com where I promote my book and other writings. The joy of the Lord is my strength and for that I am truly grateful. For every mountain he has brought me over, for every trial he has seen me through and for every blessing, for this I give God praise!!!
