Morning

I love the first moments of morning best; those seconds before I’m fully awake. I don’t know what day it is yet and my lists haven’t formed. That’s when I think of Him. I wonder what He’s doing and what things look like from His perspective. What does He think of?

I marvel that He made me, chose me. Why? Why me? What on earth do I have to offer Him? I stand at this time and in this generation for His glory. I’ve read and retread the entire Bible again and again and that’s what I come up with – glory.

He created this world… all of it’s amazing treasures for-His-glory. That each of us would look up and realize this was not an accident. There is a Creator God, our Father. And He adores us so much that He sent His Son to die for our sins and show us the way to eternal life with Him.

It sounds crazy. No matter how many times I hear it, it just sounds… crazy. Me, a girl from Atlanta, capturing God’s attention and communicating with Him? I was floored at 11 years old and I’m floored today. The Great I AM near-by, closer than my breath.

I ask Him to help me understand, to give me wisdom… I want to know the way through today. I want to choose wisely and act like I’m all His. I want everyone to know the shear joy of belonging to Him and being loved by Him – the One who waits to show us His glory.

“LORD, until I can see You face to face and feel Your hands touch mine, fill me up with Your mighty Spirit. Keep the wonder and longing alive and help me share the thrill of knowing You personally. You are God and there is no other.”
