O LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. Isaiah 33:2
Find peace in the morning rush and you will have a good day. ~Mike Dolan
Have you ever been up early in the morning, sometime around dawn? It is very quiet, very few cars are in the streets, there is no one to be seen walking around and even the birds are quiet. There is a serene quality early in the morning. If you want to get somewhere without rushing and stress get up early and go. If you want to get a lot done at the office or even around the house get up early and get to work, you’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish. I’ll admit that I’m one of those “morning” people but I think we are rare. lol In the morning, I find peace to pray and to read the Bible to start the day off right. If I miss it because of oversleeping, getting things done – it just feels like I’ve forgotten something all day.
When is your “quiet time with God”? If its hard to find time, just take a few minutes to pray about those whose concerns are close to your heart. Or to pray about situations that are concerning you. If you forget (as we all do!) just remember tomorrow is a fresh new start.
Father God – Thank you for new beginnings every morning. Help us to start the day with purpose, prayer and promise. Help us to be grateful to start a new day and have strength to handle each and every situation that lay before us. Thank you for your unconditional love. Amen.
