Wake Up Early

Wake Up Early

I wake up Early in the morning.
The Sun is only beginning to rise.
It’s quiet in the morning.
There is no else that I can see.
Yesterday’s failures haven’t awakened.
They’ve not time yet to remind me.
Of all my need to grieve.
Today’s struggles are still in their slumber.
Only my thoughts interrupt the solitude.
I talk with the One who loves me.
His gentle voice brings me peace.
It’s good to know I’m not alone.
It’s good to know He waits for me.
Him and His mercy every morning.
His creation is awakening slowly.
Reluctant as I am to face another day.
I realize all is still in order.
All is still within His control.
I smile as He assures me I am with Him.
My two best friends are playing before me.
Happy to be with me and wander the yard.
Content to search for where others have been.
They earnestly seek my love and attention.
My Father then tells me … He does too!
Why would anyone miss His morning?
All is at peace while evil sleeps.
The only struggle is to open my eyes and see.
It is the beginning with no thought of the end.
There is only communion with the One I love.
And my two best friends in the morning.
All happy just to be with me!
