To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
This sunrise appeared three-dimensional at first sight. Upon further reflection, the layer of fog appears to blend into the cloud cover as the sun struggles to complete its morning ritual. I am so thankful for God’s sunrises that are part of my morning ritual of prayer.
Some days I struggle to lift my soul to the Lord because my mind is fogged in and my heart is clouded by concerns too difficult for me. But as soon as I start to recite the nine words above, my soul is truly uplifted. Then there is appreciation for and anticipation of God’s leading and teaching throughout the day.
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all the day long.
Thank You, O Lord, that to You I can lift my soul.
