There is no better way to start your day with the resurrected King, the living God Almighty. The One who was, the One who IS, and the One who is to come. Oh, how my heart calls out to Him when my eyes open, longing for his sweet presence and intimacy. He fills my cup, and my soul is satisfied. He is the bread of life, and I need to eat the Word of God and absorb it into my being before I can do anything else. I do not live by bread alone, but by every single word that comes out of the sweet mouth of God.
There’s something extremely powerful about starting your day with Jesus. Just like food gives energy and sustains, you would never start going about your day without putting something in your stomach, lest you faint. Likewise (but so much more!), Jesus gives us everything we need to start our day – closeness with the living God and a satisfied soul, filled with His love and strength. It’s so imperative that lovers of Jesus spend deep solid time with Him! I don’t want to start my day with anything other than intimacy with God. I don’t want to see anyone before I talk to God and tell Him how much I love Him. I don’t want to get busy before I spend time basking in His light. If I neglect this, I neglect the very breadth in which I exist, and I will run on empty. I need His filling and His touch every single morning.
Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.
When my eyes open, give me Jesus. 💛 He’s all I want.
