In the morning…

I am reminded again of God's goodness, especially when I start my day with Him.  No, starting my day with a devotional does not insure a 'good' day, (see my post titled Ummm) but starting my day with God insures a well directed day!
In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; in the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch.  Psalm 5:3

It has been a challenge to get in my devotional time as of late, life seems to get in the way....and mostly because I let it - :S   I've been trying lately to get up early, before my girls arise to get in some quiet prayer time and some substantial reading.  Now of course two days into this my littlest one started waking up a whole hour early.  This was discouraging for a bit, but I've heard that this happens to many moms who try this - so I pushed through, thanks to help from my husband too!
But I, O Lord, have cried out to You for help, and in the morning my prayer comes before You.  Psalm 88:13

There have been many a days when I would have enjoyed an extra hour of sleep, or even many a days when getting out of bed to have this morning devotional seemed impossible.  Being too tired, falling back a sleep, laziness, etc.  But God, of course, did not fail me!  He knew I needed this and also I want this and He has helped and made it possible to get up and get going.
God is in the midst of he, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.  Psalm 46:5 (No, I did not change it to say she and her, that is the reference!)
For a long time I never really saw the importance of starting the day with God.  I mean I knew it was important to pray to Him all day and to have a personal devotional time but I never realized the importance of having it in the morning.  But now after doing it for some time, I can see how my life is better for it!
Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; for I trust in You; teach me the way in which I should walk; for to You I lift up my soul.  Psalm 143:8
