I Will Seek You In The Morning

Blank Facebook Post - 2019-07-27T191955.994

Give ear to my words, O Lord;
consider my meditation.
Harken to the to the voice of my cry,
my King and my God,
for unto you do I pray.
O Lord, in the morning will I direct my prayers;
Unto you I look up and wait with expectation. Psalm 5 1-3

How does your day begin?

The first thing David did each morning was to lift his voice to the Lord. His first words of the day were to God. He goes on, “In the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.” What a perfect way to begin the day!

Lift your voice to God in prayer. Lay your requests before Him. Set out before Him the things you are going to have to do that day. Commit to Him the problems, the difficulties you anticipate. Submit all your decisions to Him.

Morning prayer sets the tone for the day. If our morning begins with worry, that will only increase as the day moves along. But if we start out by enjoying time with God and receiving strength from God, we will more likely remain in his peace as the day continues. There’s no better way to begin the day than with prayer.

May we each bring our requests before Him often…waiting with expectation.

Loving Father, thank you for meeting me in this prayer time. I know that you hear me and care about what I share with you. Thank you for paying attention to someone like me and accepting me as your precious child. Thank you, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

My name is Cheryl Cooper, I have been a survivor of childhood sexual and a victim of a stalker and sexual assault at 15. I endured a painful divorce in 2015. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting! God Bless! The Lord has also blessed me abundantly with 3 beautiful grown and married adult children.
