The good news is that we get to choose a good morning for ourselves today! No one can steal that choice away from us and a beautiful sunrise is a great reminder of God’s unending and merciful love for each of us. I pray that this song by Mandisa will get your feet a tapping and may just get you up and dancing before the Lord this morning! Now, before you kick those slippers off and start singing with that ghastly morning breath–let’s take a minute and pray these verses together!

“Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret—it leads only to evil. For those who are evil will be destroyed,
but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.”

Psalm 37:3-9
