E-votional  Wake Up
March 20, 2001
Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning, for in you I put my trust. Teach me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
-- Psalm 143:8
There we lay, feeling the soft sheets on our legs, the pillow that surrounds our head.  The sun creeps into the bedroom through the window.  Our mind, fresh, renewed to begin a new day.  Any list of "to do items" is the last thing that enters our mind.  We have awaken form our slumber, ready to begin an new day.  We awake with someone already thinking about us.
Hear the Good News, God waits for you, each morning to stat your day with Him.  He so wants to be a guide for you in the morning, to straighten your paths, to lead you to quiet streams of faith.  The Psalmist has it right when he turns to God for direction in his day.  Allow God to lead you and He will not forget or forsake you.
Each day we wake up, and each day, You wait for us.  Why we forget about you, but try to remember tedious tasks, I don't understand, but I want to have You be the foundational focus of each day.  Patiently You wait for us, and ever so patiently You guide us.  Let today, and the days that follow, begin with youThank You for all You have done in my life, and all You will continue to do, through Christ our Lord I pray.  Amen.
