Dream Again

October 17, 2021 • Brian Becker • It's A New Day

When we were children it was easier to believe and imagine that the improbable and impossible could happen. Then life happened. And for many of us: “then this year happened.”

A primary theme of scripture is a demonstration of God’s commitment to redeem, restore, and renew the things in our lives that have been hurt, damaged, and broken. The promise of a new day awaits!

It’s A New Day (Dream Again) - Brian Becker

Psalm 126:1-3 (MSG)

Psalm 126:4-6 (MSG)
And now, God, do it again — bring rains to our drought-stricken lives So those who planted their crops in despair will shout “Yes!” at the harvest, So those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.
