Dawn seems a bit elusive, not quite the previous night and not quite the new day. But dawn allures us with her promise. Dawn is there, waiting to remind us of fresh hope.
And people can actively participate in bringing this metaphor to life. “But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.” (Proverbs 4:18) The way that I walk, as a “declared right” child of God, leads to the hope of a bright new future. Right habits, right methods and strategies, right ways of doing things can day be day lead me to my future home.
By taking step one, I can find my path forward and leave darkness which can lead me to the hope of a new dawn, and eventually bring me to the full, fresh, new day of a bright future.
