In the morning…when I rise…

“In the morning, when I rise, in the morning, when I rise, in the morning, when I rise, give me Jesus…”

I repeat this song. Pretty much all day.

To be blunt, I’ve really been struggling lately. Like bad. I feel anxious, unworthy, unloved. I know it’s not true, like really, I know. I’ve just let the enemy speak lies to me, and since I haven’t been in Gods word as much as I should, those lies speak louder than HIS truth!

“Let me bear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.” Psalm 143:8

I don’t know about you, but sometimes my head is barely above my pillow as I wake up and anxieties attack me. Fears overwhelm me. I’ve barely grabbed my daughter out of her crib before I have decided this is going to be a horrible day, and I will live as a prisoner in my own mind.

I came across this verse today and exclaimed “YES!” This is the truth I need. This is the truth I CLAIM.

Jesus, let me HEAR in the morning of your steadfast love. Not the enemy. Not my fears. Let me hear of YOU!!
