Morning by Morning, September 4 - Morning Meditation
Good morning, Lord Jesus. You're my Lord and Savior, my Father and Friend. I worship You and welcome You into every moment of my day. ...
"May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works -- who looks on the earth and it trembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke. I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being. May my meditation be pleasing to Him, for I rejoice in the Lord" (Psalm 104:31-34).
In these first moments of my morning -- before I give my thoughts to any other matter, before I begin to think of anything else I need to do today, before I open my mouth to be filled with any other word besides Your name and Your praise -- I want to meditate on You alone. I want to speak Your name, sing Your praise, and seek Your face. I want to take time sit in the silence, to wait for the leading of Your Spirit, to embrace the majesty and mystery of Your Presence here with me, even here within me. ...
May my meditation be pleasing to You. May my offering of my heart and my time be a gift You enjoy. Though I'm the one who needs it, I do hope it brings You some measure of joy to receive it. "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer" (Psalm 19:14). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
My Friend, may the Spirit of the Lord draw you into a deep place of meditation upon our God and His Word and His Presence within your heart every day. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
