Starting Our Day with Him

To me, there is nothing “softer” and “sweeter” than the first gentle moments of the morning…… before all systems are “GO” – with thoughts running to and fro  searching for the best way to do this thing or that thing I’m expected to do…….

All of that is well – and for things like that – indeed we are  accountable……         But oftentimes in the quiet stillness of the early morning – before all these things start moving….. When we take the time to draw aside with God, we take those precious moments of our time to look at the eternal –  and as we look,  our thoughts rise to worship and adore Him….. It’s not an “idea” – it’s not a    “let’s pretend this is real” (or what I’ve heard scornfully referred to as  “having a Jesus moment”) – but He is there …and very glad that you came to meet Him this day.

You were made for fellowship with God – and it delights Him that you took the time to be there ….. He knows your time constraints – and as much as you can get still from all the thoughts that would try to push into that space – He will visit you with the things that He knows are most needed this day for you – And oftentimes He’ll bring fresh ideas and answers before this time with Him is through……

I sometimes say  after such times as those – that the Lord is my helper in every good endeavor – and indeed that is true……Of course, He is not my servant – far from that – but for you and me,  He honestly wants to be a close and dear friend.  Still, He is God alone – and supreme over all – the God of all creation….. And if you choose to come  to Him, you will soon understand – that His heart is full of love for you.

God will meet you anytime, any place – that you care to seek His face….. and I am so glad for that.   I am glad that I can come to Him in the middle of a busy day – and He doesn’t chide me if early that morning He waited for me and I failed to be there.   Nevertheless there is nothing quite as sweet as the gentle call of the early morning to start our day in the stillness with Him.
