Good morning on this crisp pre-fall morning! Sitting outside in the middle of the woods, reading my precious Bible, with my dear husband at my side. I’m drawn closer to the Lord as I hear the sound of the morning insects and beautifully melodious birds, all singing in perfect harmony. As I read God’s word, with his creation all around me, my spirit feels a sense of ease from the chaotic week. Amazing how God’s words always speaks to my heart, regardless of where my heart has wandered prior to opening the Book of Life!
In the midst today’s chaos and confusion… I am reminded me to fix my gaze upon the Lord!
“Look up! Give thanks to the Lord! Remember the amazing things He’s done. To sing him Praises! To worship him right where I am!
I am reminded that…
“This is the day that the Lord has made and I am to rejoice and be glad in it!”
After I give proper thanks for the beautiful day God has so graciously blessed me with, I am to seek his face, where I will find strength for the day ahead!
Friends, I am not a morning person and am rarely prone to reading God’s word first thing in the morning. However, I am reminded today that morning is in fact the very best time to seek his face! I head into my day with a renewed strength, renewed eagerness, and renewed Strength to face whatever comes my way!
