Good morning!

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. I woke up at 5:30 this morning so I could squeeze in a run before work (also because it is bloody hot by the time 7 am rolls around). It was light outside but the sun had not yet peeked its face above Superstition Mountain in the distance. I hit the ground running and immediately felt a sense of peace and comfort. For whatever reason I seem to be able to listen to God outdoors better, and this morning was no different. He spoke to me on my bitterness, jealousy, and anger issues; calming them all and reminding me that He desires holiness out of me not my own wants/desires. He reminded me of how blessed I am in so many different ways. Then as the sun started to poke out and the sky was illuminated with pink and orange radiance, He reminded me of how great He is. I wish everyone I encountered could see and feel God as I did this morning, disbelief in God would be non-existent. Anyway, I ended up running seven miles which is the longest I have run in a couple of months and it felt so good. Truly I feel refreshed, restored and ready for a new day (how do you like that alliteration!). Thank-you God for a great start to my morning.
