I hope you will have a good beginning to your morning too...and that you will have a wonderful day!
In The Still of the Morning
In the still of the morning when the world is still asleep
And you listen so intently but you cannot hear a peep
And the sun has not awakened, or made its first appearance
And you gaze at the horizon and you see no interference
Everything is mute and quiet, and you feel a sense of calm
And the cup that you are holding feels so warm it’s like a balm
So you sip the warm dark liquid and you bow your head to pray
Then you read a Psalm and meditate on what it has to say
There is nothing to disturb you so you soak in every word
And there is a new excitement as God’s voice is being heard
Yet you sit there in the silence and He speaks right to your heart
And you wonder why each and everyday can’t have this kind of start
It’s because we often hurry through the routines of our day
Or we get up late and worry that the time will get away
But in the still of every morning He waits there silently
Waiting for you to acknowledge Him in everything you see
For without Him there is nothing just a vast and empty void
But in His glorious presence we can never feel annoyed
There is peace and tranquil splendor, and it’s all so very real
We can never quite explain it, or describe how it makes us feel
It’s more like, an awesome “knowing” that He is there with us
And our spirit has assurance, and in Him we place our trust
And to think I almost missed it…this blessed time alone with God
But the stillness of the morning beckoned me with a gentle nod
Now the sun is slowly rising and the dawn has brought the day
And my hope is that tomorrow can begin in this same way
In the still of the morning!

Psalm 92: 1,2,4 NLT
It is good to give thanks to the Lord
to sing praises to the Most High.
It is good to proclaim your unfailing love
in the morning,...
You thrill me Lord with all you have done for me!
