What does that mean to you, "joy comes in the morning" . It means to me that the Lord has got everything under control. Doesn't it always seem better the next morning what ever we are going through.
I originally posted this a year or so ago and it is always a wonder that I am writing something for someone else, but it always comes back to me in the end. Joy is something I need right now, Joy is not a fleeting feeling that is called happiness, joy comes from within. I am learning that life is not easy and it is really not easy when you become a parent. I am learning how to let go and let God have control over my children. I dedicated them to Him when they were babies, but I never truly have let go of them. I am in a season of learning to take it one morning at a time, and that the sun will come up at the end of the night and I am going to be able to turn my face into the warmth and bask in it.
Sin has a way of trying to creep in and still our joy, satan wants to rob us of every bit of it. He wants us to wallow in shame and in the darkness, because when we are in the darkness there is not light and light truly comes from above.
I love the mornings, I love the quietness of it. The freshness of the morning. It seems like the Lord cleaned up over night and everything is bright and fresh. Its like a new start. Every morning that we get to wake up is a blessing from the Lord.
Joy comes in the morning when we go to Him in prayer. Prayer for our husbands and children. For us to be better moms and wives and servants for Him. Don't forget to even pray for those little things in life. God wants to hear about those too. He loves you and wants to hear from you. Sometimes we get so busy with all the stuff and fluff around us we forget to go to Him. This is not a me time but a Lord keep me in your will time. A time for just the two of you to talk.
I encourage you moms and wives to get up a little early, get a cup of coffee or tea and take the word of God and go out side. There is something about studying His word that time of the day that is special. I feel closer to Him for sure. I promise you it sets the tone for the whole day.
