Bread For The Journey

Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord.
Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.
Psalm 5:3

I am reading through the Psalms this month, and have noticed that the writer of this book (David) is a man after God's own heart. A man that cries out to God, prays to God, praises Him, sees great miracles that God does in spite of all David's sinful short comings and trials that he is going through. David is so devoted to spending time with God, that he begins his day with listening for the voice of God and waits expectantly to hear from Him. That is what I want for myself, not to just pray and hope for the best, but to wait expectantly for God to work things out in my life, regardless of how flawed my sinful nature is. I have been redeemed and forgiven.

Are you going through a challenge in your life? Then take some time in the morning, bring your requests to Him and join me in waiting expectantly. I want that to become second nature in my life to seek Him first thing in the morning every day, no matter what is happening in my life.
That is a great way to start the beginning of every new day, don't you agree?


  1. Thank you Char for speaking so close to the heart. Truly there is a difference when we can 'wait expectantly,' no matter what our requests are. Waiting is sometimes the challenge in a world of fast fixes.

  2. I read this earlier this morning and remembered as the day progressed to look expectantly for what God is doing.
    It's a wonderful challenge!

  3. Thank you for this Charlotte. I am amazed at God's grace and mercy on my life even when my flesh is so weak.
    Joining you in waiting on the Lord to see what he will do. Praise God!

  4. What a good encouragement while I wait to see how God will work things out. Thank you.
