Why God Wants Us to Be Morning People

I am not a morning person: Waking up early has never come naturally to me. But I’m convinced that God must be a morning “person” — and that He wants us to become morning people, too. I’ve fought the concept of morning devotions for many years and convinced myself that no matter when I made the time was fine. Did I mention I am not a morning person?

Managing Your BlessingsLast year, I went through one of the most spiritually challenging times in my life, and I found myself in need of spiritual strength like never before just to make it through the day. I shared a little bit about this struggle in our Moms Grappling With Grief post.

During this time, I learned a few things about why God might want to meet me in the morning — why first-thing-in-the-morning quiet time with God was so precious to the wise women who had learned this lesson before me and recommended it. By developing a new daily routine of spending time with God first thing — no matter what was awaiting me in my day — I began to see God renew me, strengthen me and equip me for anything the day might bring.
