Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14
Last Sunday I was on my way to pick our children up at my parent's house where they had stayed the weekend. I was early enough to get them ready for church, and was really using the drive time to worship and just praise God for who He is. As I began praying, this overwhelming joy came over me, and it ran through me for a long time. The drive continued, and so did the worshp! I was reminded that JOY does come in the morning, most likely where most of us need it to get going. I can't express how many times before I had woke up and just tredged through my day, with my mood getting even more foul as the day progressed. It was at that moment, on that beautiful winter Sunday morning, that God spoke and said "That is why I always say there will be joy in the morning. No matter how bad the evening got, or lonly you may have become through the night, there is JOY in the morning!"
It was a moving moment for me, and one I took with me every single morning this week. Each one of us reflected back to Sunday morning for one reason or another, and God is just moving our little family closer and closer to HIM!
