Good Morning my friends,
As adults when we plan our vacations, we do our best to go somewhere with a lot of beauty and splendor. A place where we can try to get away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life and get re-energized or seek a renewal of our Spiritual well being. Most of the time we either aim for the mountains crisp cooler air or the ocean where we can see crystal clear water and feel the sand between our toes. In the majestic mountains we seek a place of tranquility, where we can get in touch with nature.. A place where we can hear all kinds of birds singing, the butterflies fluttering & the smell the sweet scent of the tall pines with a hint of brewing coffee from the cabin.. Then there’s the beach. The salty smell of the ocean, the sugar sand beaches, the crashing sound of the waves rushing a shore while the sun try’s to burst from the Eastern horizon on the rise while the moon slowly descends behind you. There’s something about the solitude of nature in the early morning air that soothes the soul but in all honesty I wouldn’t exchange the mountains or the beach for how I’m awakened almost everyday. My morning wake-up call is usually with a gentle kiss from the love of my life. She does this while her hands are cupping my face and she softly tells me it’s time to get up. I then give her a big hug while focusing on her loving beautiful blue eyes. I then eagerly dive directly into my morning prayer seeking my Savior’s permission to start my day as my boys use to do with me on the weekends when they were in early elementary. I don’t have to go on vacation away from the world to find tranquility, solitude and splendor. I find those things in my Lord & Savior and He is more refreshing than any ocean wave or a mountain breeze.
“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
God wants you to meet with Him in the splendor of the early morning. It is there that He eagerly awaits for you. It’s in the stillness of Holy Time with Him that He will renew your strength and fill you with Peace and Tranquility. While the world hits the snooze button for a few minutes of extra sleep or turns on the tv for the latest in overnight news, take the time to connect with the Creator of the universe. He will awaken your hearts desire to know Him which will burn brightly in you. When you seek God’s Face in response to His Love-call, you will be blessed. God delights in your enjoyment of everything that’s true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. His Light and those things will illuminate in you and make your day even brighter.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU…. Seek to find solitude and splendor in prayer with your Savior..
I hope that you all have a MAGNIFICENT day.. Blessings & much love….D
ALWAYS…..Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!
