â€œIn the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.â€ – Psalm 5:3
Are you a morning person, or a night person? Because of commitments to work and school, my wife and I have to be up and going in the morning; but millions of people donâ€™t get going until about three oâ€™clock in the afternoon. Thatâ€™s when their creative juices start flowing and when they really feel alive. For most of us, the day begins much earlier.
Even if youâ€™re a night owl, let me suggest a great way to start your day. The writer of Psalms knew the key: â€œIn the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice (or prayer).â€
Doesnâ€™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 Godâ€™s Word and share with Him through prayer your heart and your concerns. It will help get you in the right frame of mind. Youâ€™ll find your day will start, and finish, a whole lot better.
