“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” Psalms 118:24, NKJV.
It’s impossible to say that without smiling. I have this friend that would call me at 5:00 am to say good morning in a singing voice as if I’m already awake and ready to go. I have another friend that whenever we come together to pray in the morning, we start with a long, “Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood moooornning Daddy! Then we laugh at how silly we sound, but how good it feels. I’ve always loved mornings because of this. To me, morning represents God’s love and mercy. It represents a new day, a fresh start, and another chance to do it better this time.
I say to you, “Good morning!”
Don’t allow the negative experiences you’ve had in life to rob you of your good morning. Receive a fresh start. See a sunrise. Hear the birds chirping. Feel the crisp morning air. Breathe deeply and slowly as you awake. Welcome, my friend, to a new day. To a second chance to do it better this time. Stand and say to God, “Goooooooooooooooooood morning Daddy!!!!! Then go on and enjoy your day. You can’t change yesterday. Tomorrow’s not here yet. All you have is today.
Prayer: Father, Good morning. I know you never sleep or slumber, but still I say good morning. I love you and I thank you for blessing me to see a new day that I’ve never seen before. I receive your love and your warmth. Help me to forget yesterday, and not fret over tomorrow, but to enjoy this present day. Make this day special and give me peace about it all. It’s going to be ok because you are with me. You love me, and you’re blessing me now. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
