Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

rejoicing comes in the morning

Psalm 30:5

5 For his anger lasts only a moment,
   but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may remain for a night,
   but rejoicing comes in the morning. 



This morning, Lord God, once again I choose joy.  I release the pain, the frustration, the anger and I embrace Your joy.  Your peace, Your comfort, Your wise counsel.  I pray that today I will shine Your light, to Your glory, God.  Help me to stand straight and strong, to forge forth on the path You have set before me.  To put all disappointments, sadness, bitterness and fear behind me.  To reach out my hand and place it firmly in Yours, Father.  To stand against the lies of the enemy that he whispers into my ear...help me not to listen.  Help me to remember that in YOU, oh God, I am beloved, I am whole, I am strong.  Help me, hold me, lead me.   Give me wisdom to know the truth, humility to put others first, strength to do the things I must even when I don't want to.  Thank you, God, for always being with me.  Thank you for providing all I need.  Thank you for all the blessings You give.

Amen
