"In the Morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation." Psalm 5:3

Have you spent some time yet this morning talking to the Lord? I have always felt morning to be a good time to speak from my heart undisturbed to Him. No phones ringing, no little people tugging at me; nothing to interrupt the flow of prayer and thoughts exchanged with Him. This early morning time is a beginning of the day and the beginning of my waking hours. By spending this time with Him early, it reinforces my direction for the day and places me in the place I need to be, listening.

Too often I am always in prayer requesting, asking, searching, probing, pleading and tearfully in despair. Most likely I should have sat in silence focusing on Him alone and the gifts I already possess and asking simply what can I do in this day for you? .... and then waiting for His answer. Isn't that always true? Once you stop focusing on yourself and put your energies to helping others, your problems and situations ALWAYS resolve? His answer is always there, we are just not tuned in to listening.

Some folks in our family mention to me that He is not answering their prayers. I am not sure how to respond, but first you have to believe and have a relationship with Him. Not just one of those "When I need you I will contact you" relationships....but a true relationship. Once you have bridged communication and have a true unconditional relationship with Him, you will hear Him when He whispers to your heart. You will see Him working circles around you daily as He lights up the world around you and you realize you are never in the dark.

Can you hear Him? If not, be still and listen.

Joy and Abundance,


"I will listen to what God the Lord will say, for He will speak peace to His people." Psalm 85:8

"But if we look forward to something we don't have yet, we must wait patiently and confidently." Romans 8:24-25
