Even if You’re a Night Owl…

“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

Are you a morning person or a night person? Because of various commitments, my wife and I have to be up and going in the morning, but I know millions of people don’t get going until about three o’clock in the afternoon. That’s when their creative juices start flowing and when they really feel alive. For most of us, however, the day begins much earlier.

Even if you’re a night owl, let me suggest a great way to start your day (whatever time your “morning” begins). The writer of Psalms knew the key: “In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice (or prayer).”

Doesn’t it make sense to be in touch with the One who created the day? Why not begin your day by spending a few minutes alone with God each morning? Study God’s Word and share with Him through prayer your heart and your concerns. It will help get you in the right frame of mind. You’ll find your day will start (and finish!) a whole lot better!
