Seeds of Faith

Life doesn’t come with a pause button, especially for you. Between work deadlines, family obligations and the never-ending to-do list, it might feel like you’re always chasing the next thing. But what if I told you there’s a way to center yourself before diving into the day’s demands? Psalm 5:3 offers a gentle yet powerful reminder.

O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.
– Psalm 5:3 ESV

The Psalmist has penned an invitation for you to start your day grounded in a relationship with God. There’s something unmatchable about beginning your day that way, just wrapped up in the peace and love God offers.

And, why mornings? Well, mornings are like the world’s way of saying, “Let’s try this again.” It’s a fresh start, untangled from yesterday’s worries and the complexities that the day will eventually bring. Jesus often spent time in prayer during the quiet, early hours, as in Luke 5:16, which gives you a glimpse just how precious this time can be.

When you speak to God, you plant seeds of faith that you’re trusting God to water and grow.

When you lay your thoughts, your needs and your hopes before God and then wait expectantly, you’re giving God space to move in your life. It’s like saying, “Okay, God, I’ve shared my heart with you, and I’m excited to see how you’ll weave your love and wisdom into my day.”

Now, how about turning this into a daily moment of grace? Instead of rushing through your morning, take a moment to say a positive affirmation or a scriptural prayer. Never underestimate the power of words, especially words spoken in prayer. Speaking to God plants seeds of faith that you’re trusting God to water and grow.

So give it a try. Start your morning with this affirmation or prayer, allowing God’s love to be your first thought, not an afterthought. That simple, heartfelt connection can transform not just your mornings, but infuse your whole life with a peace that surpasses all understanding.

Today’s One Thing
Take time right now to say a positive affirmation or a scriptural prayer. How about something like this: God, as I face a new day, I put all my cares before you. I wait expectantly, knowing that you’re working everything together for good. Your love goes before me, and your grace follows me. Amen.
