Psalm 63: 1         KJV

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee.

To rise early in the morning,
While all is quiet and still,
Gives me time to mediate;
Time to seek His will,
Time to read the Bible,
Time to plan my day,
Time to let God cleanse my heart,
And throw the trash away.
Time for asking blessings,
Time to offer praise,
Time to ask forgiveness
For other wasted days.
The yoke is then much lighter;
I’m more refreshed and strong,
Ready to do the task at hand –
Knowing I’m not alone.

In our putting away and cleaning up from Christmas, my roommate found this little poem that her grandmother cut out of the newspaper and saved. What a blessing. Her grandmother passed away in 2000 and yet she is still contributing to, not only our lives, but hopefully yours as well. Enjoy your morning devotional, courtesy of Mildred Perry.
