" And in the morning, long before daylight, He got up and went out to a deserted place, and there He prayed "... Mark 1:35
Most mornings I wake and just automatically get up. This morning I just took my time and listened to see if I could hear the morning wake. It's still dark outside and I didn't hear any birds. They are sleeping too. It's been so warm the last couple of days I turned the heat off so there is no noise from the heat ducts either. The house was silent except for the patter of Cocoapuff who was jumping around like a crazy cat. She was hungry and demanded I get up, so I rolled out of bed, fed the cat and made my coffee. So the routine begins.
I have to admit, if it were not for Cocoapuff, I probably would have stayed in bed a little longer this morning. Looking out the window, it's going to be a beautiful day, and I plan to sit and drink my coffee while I feel myself fully wake up. In the Bible we are told to seek God for a fresh word each day. Doing this early starts my day right and from there I can travel the tangents of my life easier. To be still and listen to God each morning is the part of my morning I most look forward to and I thank God for this time in my life.
"If you seek Me early and diligently, you will find Me" ... Proverbs 8:17
