As I sat with my oldest child at the table this morning, the Lord confirmed to me that rising early is exactly what he wants for my life. He did this through my little boy, who opened up the Bible to read to me and happened to land on Isaiah 60:1-5:
"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm. Then you will look radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth of the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come." NIV
Wow, isn't it totally amazing how the Lord works?! He always lets me know what he wants me to do and I just give him all of the glory and honor and praise for being such a wonderful God ;-) Thank you Jesus!
