Mornings

There’s something very special about the mornings. Not everyone is a morning person, but I do believe the morning can set the pace for the rest of your day.

Listen to what the psalmist says about mornings:

I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word (Psalm 119:147).

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! . . . When I awake, I am still with you (Psalm 139:17-18).

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul (Psalm 143:8).

God is thinking about you. Are you thinking about Him? Does He hear your voice in the morning? Do you come to Him in expectation?

Whether you’re a morning person or not, get into the habit of beginning your day with thoughts of Him. Live in the awareness that the moment you wake up in the morning, He is thinking about you. He has watched over you through the night, and He’s going to direct you through the day ahead.

Begin your day by saying, “Good morning, Lord.” Or thank Him for a night’s rest and ask Him to direct your steps. He said He will never leave you; be aware of His presence and have a grateful, thankful heart full of praise and adoration as you begin your day.

I promise you, this will change your day.


Pit Stop Practice

Each night this month, as you close your eyes, determine that your first thought in the morning will be a prayer. When you awake in the morning, offer a prayer of thanks or praise and ask God to guide your steps that day.
