In the Waking Moments



There is a beauty to each morning when you first wake up. It is still dark and you go to the window with half asleep steps and look out into the sky and see a ribbon of color forming on the horizon announcing a brand new day.

Then you breathe your first words to the Lord and thank Him for this day and for His abundant blessings in your life.

You worship Him for who He is and know that your great God will walk beside you each moment through this day and with every step.

Do this today and again tomorrow and the tomorrows after that and you will know Him as you have not known Him before. 

You will delight in Him. 

And He will delight in you.

Drawing close to the Lord in the waking moments of a new day, it doesn’t get any better than this.


Psalm 143:8
Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, 
For in You do I trust; 
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, 
For I lift up my soul to You.
