Awakening The Dawn

“I will awaken the dawn.”  Psalm 108:2

The birds are really great at this.

Lord, may I praise You even in the dark.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

On The Rise

I heard the first bird singing
before it was even light

trusting and believing
in the coldness of night

that the sun which had not risen
surely would yet come

and in its heart began to praise
as though it was already done.



  1. So, so beautiful, Sis Deb! Such a song of faith in Him. God bless you as you prepare to serve Him throughout the day, redeeming the time, pouring out grace–powered by His Holy Spirit. Love you, sis Caddo

  2. “I will awaken the dawn.”

    Now that’s power!

    Evolutionary humanists talk about ‘chance’.

    No chance!!

    Beautiful poem, Debbie. God bless.

  3. If I can sing in the dark, singing in the light is that much more meaningful.

  4. Dear friend –
    What a sweet picture of faith – believing what is not yet seen; hearing the song in the darkness!
    May our nights, since you and I share much of the night, be as sweet as the days knowing His presence is present in all fullness in both.

  5. This one ministered to me this am. Sing in he dark….I like it Deb, thank you!

  6. I agree with Roger – i was struck when you highlighted this verse with the power one would need to possess to awaken the dawn, and the trust in the yet unseen breaking of dawn because of the ever faithful One is wonderful.

    Beautiful Deb.

  7. glimpses of LIGHT … my favorite …. those early morning blue colors are marvelous … and so are your words 🙂

  8. “that the sun which had not risen; surely would yet come
    and in its heart began to praise; as though it was already done.”

    Oh how I wish each one of us had this much faith…. to praise the Lord for blessings we have yet to receive.

    Wonderful Lesson Deb. Thank you.

  9. Thankful to trust in the surety of His dawning! Blessings Deb in what He awakens in you!

  10. Reblogged this on My Delight and My Counsellors.

  11. The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn….which shines brighter and brighter until full day. Proverbs 4:18. “Everything”……will work together for our good. Romans 8:28.

  12. “I will awaken the dawn.” Psalm 108:2

    I read the Psalm because I was interested in discovering who said these words. It was David. He was talking about making so much noise in praising God with his harp, lyre, and singing that the dawn would be awakened. His reasoning for his loud praise: he wanted help from God in battles with his adversaries.

    Like hello, Larry. Make some noise today!

    Great poem. If Aub has any pictures of ponies making snow angels, tell her to post them. I’d love to see them.

  13. Debbie, this is so lovely! I read it earlier in my e-mail box just after coming in the house from letting the dog out. We have a choir of feathered ones inhabiting our garden lately.

    Blessings ~ Wendy

  14. I relate since my scripture studies starts at 5 and, by my bed, the window is large enough to hear countless song! The triumphal revelation of the little creatures humbles me as does your writing !

  15. Thank you and God bless you, sweet Sis Caddorino Delightino! I can see and hear you awakening the dawn with your prayers and praise! Love you and am praying for you!

  16. 😀 I love your comment Roger! God bless you as you know you know you know the Son is coming!

  17. Amen, Pastor Bill! Praying to just do it! God bless you as you make some noise for Him!

  18. Oh I love you being here, gracious friend!!! 😀 And I loved knowing His presence is present at night the same as during the day. Love you and God bless you as you trust Him more and more!

  19. I’m so glad that it blessed you! Knowing that, blessed me! Thank you and God bless you more!

  20. I had thought of this before reading the verse .. .hearing that first bird singing. There was something powerful in that, indeed. Thanks for your insight and the way you praise the ever faithful One! God bless you!

  21. Your comment reminds me of a poem, Heidi .. glimpses of Light! God bless you as you praise and sing! You are a delight to Him.

  22. Thanking Him for sending me that little fearless trusting bird! 🙂 God bless you, Pastor Rob, and your strong faith in Him!!

  23. Thank you for that blessing / prayer Tom! Makes me excited! God bless you as you trust in the unseen yet to be!

  24. Thanks so so much and God bless you!

  25. Beautiful verses with this, Ike! Thank you for sharing and being here and God bless you too!

  26. I love your, ‘hello Larry’ moments! 🙂 God bless you as you stir things up a bit!
    I’d love to see those ponies making snow angels too! haha! The mental picture makes me laugh!

  27. You are so wonderful at bringing us these kind of messages , from Him and nature, Wendy. I bet those feathered friends bless you! God bless you!

  28. They just sing along with you, Deborah! How beautiful! God bless you and your heart of praise and joy for Him!

  29. I love prophetic praise! Great post, Deb!
    God Bless you!

  30. I wrote a poem this evening for you Debbie ~ trying to follow your example ~hope you like it. ~Blessings friend ~D

  31. It’s wonderful, Deborah! So touched by it and YOU! 🙂

  32. There you go, Lady Dei! Those birds got it done pat! God bless you and your sweet ones, as they sing and praise too!

  33. >> “in its heart began to praise as though it was already done”
    Isn’t this the secret?
    *IF* we believe God . . .
    *IF* we believe His promises . . .
    *IF* we believe He CANNOT break His promises . . .
    *THEN* we will praise Him for the answers ‘as though it was already done’

    We serve an incredibly amazing God who CANNOT lie; who CANNOT break His Word; who MUST, by His own nature, fulfill His Word . . . and what is more, who DELIGHTS to bless His own blood-bought, adopted children according to His abundance. “No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” Psalm 84:11

  34. Thank you for sharing this comment here .. your faith and trust in your amazing God! Loved Ps. 84:11 with it all too!!! God bless you, mentor Angela as you praise like it is already done!

  35. I love praise poetry.. I love the way you praise God. God bless you as you continue to praise Him everyday.

  36. Praising God is good, always! Thank you for encouraging me and God bless you as you praise too!

  37. Oh Deb,

    This warms my heart and inspires me!


  38. I’m so glad! 🙂 Love you and God bless you as you praise Him today!
