As I open my eyes this morning, God, I want You to be the first thing I see. Be the first thought in my mind. Be the first word I speak.
You say that Your mercies are new every morning. This morning, would You help me receive those mercies again? I still need them just as much as ever.
As I reach for the alarm clock to silence its malicious ringing, I surrender to You my frustration at being forced awake. I ask You to fill me instead with hope and excitement for what You want to accomplish in the world through me today.
Energize me for the moment I throw off the blanket and swing my feet down to the floor. From my first step today to my last, let me walk with You.
