For whatever reason, if there even is one, I am having a difficult time getting started this morning. I got up at the usual time, took the dogs outside and fed them, showered - and now here I sit. I "need" my morning cup of coffee, but haven't made it the vast distance to the kitchen yet to make it. Ever feel that way? I certainly hope you do and I'm not alone in this!
I found some verses to remind us of the beauty of morning and to hopefully get me motivated in this new day:
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Time for me to begin a new day; to go get that cup of coffee, prepare for a Greek conversation with a professor at 9:00, and head to the church. More than that, though, it's a great day to remember God's steadfast love!
