What is the first thing you do in the morning? For more than a year now, I have stuck to my resolution of spending the first 30 minutes of my morning seeking the Lord–in prayer, reading the Scriptures and writings of the Church and in meditation. I would say that this practice has greatly enriched my life. For the past year and a half, I have found it a lot easier to be cheerful and resilient to face the trials that come my way. Seeking God in the morning is now my thing.
For me, the early morning is the best time to seek God because it is quiet and still and I can easily direct my full attention towards the Lord. I believe the great King David thinks the same way too as he says in Psalms 5:3, “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.”
Find time for the Lord in the early part of the day and you will see how much life-changing this can be. Seeking God in the morning has become a beautiful and much anticipated part of my day.
