Good Morning


I didn't want to get up this morning

because I didn't feel like meeting with GOD.

I know that doesn't sound very Christian~ese

but in my not wanting to get up

was saying that I could cancel my morning date

with GOD.

What happens when I take a break from GOD?

Well it isn't good

because

I do what I want to do when I want to.

I don't do what I don't what to do when I don't want to do it.

I choose anxiety to be my partner for the day.

I live in fear of the "what ifs".

When I take a break from GOD

I break down.

I know HE is with me, yet I drag HIM along.

I know that HE loves me, yet I never acknowledge the immensity of it.

I know that HE forgives me, yet I act as if I deserve it.

I didn't want to get up this morning

because I didn't feel like meeting with

GOD

and oh how that brings sorrow to my soul.

Who would I be without GOD?

Who would you be without GOD?

Number one we wouldn't be here because

didn't GOD knit us together in our mother's womb

and all us HIS WORKMANSHIP?

Didn't GOD "so love" us

that HE sent HIS SON to be swaddled in manger

so HE would die on a cross

so that we didn't have to?

Didn't GOD set me free from years of bondage to what I made my god?

Didn't GOD graciously let me sleep in a wee bit

because of

HIS GRACE

because of the gift of free will~

to do what I want to do when I want to do it, even if it doesn't include HIM?

Well I am awake, and it isn't because of the espresso.

GOD never gives up on us.

GOD never lets us sleep in without giving us a gentle tap

to look HIS way

because HE has so much for each and every one of us

if we only

wake up to

HIM

and never stop putting HIM first

all day long

because

didn't HE put us first

when HE put HIS SON on the Cross?

GOOD MORNING!

I am glad I woke up

because I was greeted with the

"GOODNESS OF GOD" (listen to the song below)
