8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul. (Psalm 143)
Mornings are terrible for me; I am not a morning person, though I'm not exactly a night person either. However, because my husband happens to be a night person, I end up staying up way past a decent sleeping hour. Then, having to wake up to be at work by 7:30, let's just s may, I'm somewhat cranky. My mind is focused on simple things like coffee, breakfast, getting clothes ready, shower, keys, purse...etc. My mind is not on anything lovely, anything that would remind me of God's love, or at least I don't take the hint well.
If this is the case, I don't know why I should ever expect the day to get better. It seems like it's all downhill from there. However, if I just put forth a little bit of effort in asking God to give me a word of His unfailing love, then my soul will be uplifted. I will have a pleasant day. What a great perspective!
