Day Brightener, I awakened at dawn as the morning sun dappled my pillow. Thank You for the reassurance You have pressed into creation that affirms Your presence and overriding care. Today is packed full of responsibility, but for now I bask in the quietness of these refreshing moments.
Later, when I am knee-deep in my day, may I stop and reflect long enough to allow Your calm to influence my frenetic schedule. My busyness can cause me to place more importance on achievements than relationships. Help me to balance my activities with a heart-felt interest in others. Light my way. Amen.
LORD, every morning you hear my voice. Every morning, I tell you what I need, and I wait for your answer. Psalm 5:3
