In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. — Psalm 5:3

Reflect

The alarm rings. As our minds wake from the fuzziness of slumber, thoughts of the day come rushing in. Our day may have some unpleasant tasks ahead, or perhaps our to-do list is so long it makes us tired before we even begin. In any case, some mornings we'd rather stay in bed so we don't have to face the day at all.

Imagine how different our days would be if we had our cups filled by Christ first thing in the morning.

When Christ fills our cups, he gives us his love, his joy, his peace and patience. We're able to be kind, good, faithful, gentle. And hey, a little bit of self-control might come in handy at an opportune moment as well!

Christ wants to fill your cup to the brim. He knows just what you need for the day ahead.

Pray

Fill my cup, Lord. You know just what I need today.
