Some people need coffee to start their day. I need Jesus. The moment I wake up, I grab my One Year Bible and read the scheduled reading for the day. Sometimes it takes a little while before I’m fully awake; but just like the aroma from a strong fragrant cup of coffee does something to motivate an individual, so does His Word motivate my thoughts and encourages my soul.
I need this quiet time. I need this fresh start to see the awakening world through the eyes of my Lord. I need His instructions, and I need His peace for whatever lies ahead. And, as a writer, I need His inspiration because I write to give Him glory. My day would not seem right if I didn’t start out with my morning time with God.
