“Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy all our lives” (Psalm 90:14).
Why the morning? Why do you need to connect with God so early? Because the first thing you need to know every day is that you’re loved.
Getting rejected, ignored, lied to, disappointed, or even betrayed is a possibility each day. You want to be successful, and failure happens sometimes. Not to mention that though this world is beautiful, it’s also broken and sometimes tragic.
You have to know in your soul you are celebrated by your Father, no matter what the day has in store. Circumstances don’t define your peace or success, and what people do or don’t do doesn’t control your joy. So, have a cup of coffee with him, and let your peace come from who he says you are, your joy from all he wants to be for you. There will be more than enough of both to overcome any negativity that tries to get in your way today.
“Early in the morning, Jesus arose and went to a secluded place to pray” (Mark 1:35).
