“Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.” (Psalms 143: 8)
This is a perfect prayer with which to wake. We can make it a conscious practice to turn to God first thing in the morning. And we can humbly listen for the very thing that God is ready to share with us: His lovingkindness.
For when we turn to human thinking and to the senses and to others to tell us what our day holds, the presentation isn’t necessarily one that reveals love and peace and happiness. We can feel lack of motivation, weariness, uncertainty, lowered expectations, if not sheer dread of what is ahead.
But our trust first and foremost in God, in the powerful qualities of His Truth and Love, makes us receptive and prepared for a glory day, God’s day. When we lift up our soul—get out of the limited and mortal and its downward pull and take a higher perspective—we find that we can rise with joy, expectancy, and freedom. We can take one step at a time with God into a day that is big with promise and light and lovingkindness for us to experience and to share with others as well!
