Who has the privilege of hearing your voice first thing in the mornings?
Living alone and working from home several times a week there are some days when it’s well into the afternoon, and I have yet to exercise my vocal chords. The introvert in me relishes in these quiet days and easily hums along doing my daily tasks. As I’m wrapping up a study with the Love God Greatly Group one of the verses for the week stood out.
Psalm 5:3 O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.
Mornings are sort of like sacred spaces.
Not everyone has the privilege of seeing us our in undone, unprepared, undressed state. When we present ourselves to one another in the morning we show the dressed and ready to tackled the day form (as we should).
Because God knows us intimately. No dress up or pretense is required.
We can call unto him in the early hours of the morning or the wee hours of the night. He’s always available.
How often do you invite Him into your morning routine? Are mornings frantic or are you one that has everything sorted and planned for the day?
My day goes so much smoother when I take the time to prepare ahead and spend time in prayer before allowing myself to get overwhelmed or off course with all the daily to-do lists.
