I get up early in the morning to pray to you. I trust what you say. (Psalms 119:147 ERV)
How many of us can’t function in the morning until we get our coffee, Tea, Mountain Dew, Pepsi or Coke? (Raises hand shamefully) it’s like an extra pep in your step, that oooh yeah. Most days it’sneeded to get us going. Let’s face it, we all lead very busy lives. Work, School, family, church, outside organizations, wellness and many other pressures. We wear ourselves down to the bone, fall in bed at night, toss and turn until we fall out the bed in the morning, or is that just me?
We need something (Non Chemical) to help boost the system. Have you ever tried to kick that habit? Coffee, Tea or Pop? Yeah me too, I always feel like a failure after I pour that coffee and get it just right, then I take a sip and my entire being sings. Oh yeah I got it bad.
Now walk with me a little and imagine if we had that same thirst for Jesus. I can imagine that he would give us the strength to endure what the world throws at us, that he would give us peace to help us when it gets tough, I can imagine he would give us love unlimited to share with the people we encounter during the day. Don’t trust what I say about it, his word is everlasting and this is what he said about it! Give him your morning and he will provide all day. You will never feel guilty that you used his word for that extra pep!
We are still alive because the Lord ’S faithful love never ends. Every morning he shows it in new ways! You are so very true and loyal! (Lamentations 3:22-23 ERV)
“I leave you peace. It is my own peace I give you. I give you peace in a different way than the world does. So don’t be troubled. Don’t be afraid. (John 14:27 ERV)
Praise the Lord, you who are loyal to him! Praise his holy name! His anger lasts for a little while, but then his kindness brings life. The night may be filled with tears, but in the morning we can sing for joy! (Psalms 30:4-5 ERV)
