In The Morning When I Rise…

The outside is one of my favorite places to begin my day. I usually get up early, get ready, make a cup of coffee, head outside to one of my favorite rocking chairs, open up my Bible and start my dday under the great big, wide open sky.

To end my day, I like to head out in the evening under the canopy of darkness and look up into the night sky at the moon and the stars. It is a great reminder at how big my God is and how small my challenges are.

“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” -Psalms 8:3-4

The awesomeness of God is all around us and cannot be denied. When I begin and end my day by observing God and His wonders and amazement, I find that I am even more moved to know that God thinks of me. As the classis hymn puts it: “He walks with me and talks with me and He even calls me by name.”

Take some time today to get outside and allow God to get inside your heart, mind and soul…
