A Morning with the Lord
A Morning with the Lord is something that I have come to cherish. Why? Because I really need it. Without it, I feel different. I feel empty, you can even say I feel like a lost puppy. I need help and direction for my day. In my life, I have always been ahead of the game. I know what I need to do and how to do it. But, all of that is jumbled up and miss communicated throughout the day without the Lords guidance. There have been countless days when I wonder why something is different about me or someone around me. Usually, by the end of the day, I figure it out. The conclusion is that I didn’t spend time with God. Of course, I said a prayer when I woke up or I thank him. But that is not spending time with him. I didn’t stop my train of thought, I didn’t block the worldly things around me. I didn’t listen for his voice and allow him to point me in the direction I should go. Every child needs a parent and I am the child of God. He is my parent and I need him in every way. He teaches me and I need to have a listening ear.
So, I decided that from now on every time I wake up I am going to spend time with him. I will start with prayer, and allow his spirit to guide me through. I will listen and take his instruction. I will trust in his direction and keep my faith for what he has promised. I will keep him in the forefront of my mind and walk in the spirit. I will not let distractions dictate my day. I will praise him through anything and everything.
This isn’t just for the morning time. Throughout your day you need to have this time with HIM. He is who you must lean on. Even if it feels like he is not there, HE IS! You have to trust him and be the respectful, responsible child that he loves TRULY.
Do you spend time with God in the morning? Do you allow him to lead you? How can you make some changes?
