Morning by Morning the Lord wakens my ear to listen as those who are taught.
Isaiah 50:4

Morning by Morning

Lately, my mantra has been one day at a time.  So this passage – about morning by morning got my attention. What an image – that each day we are invited by the Lord to listen!  Our ears are woken up, and we get a chance to hear, to learn, to grow. 

There are lots of things that change over the course of our lives.  One of the things that has changed for me, is that I no longer require an alarm to wake up in the morning.  The night person I used to be, has become a morning person.  I love seeing the morning appear, the light come in, all without the loud noise of my phone playing music to wake me up.  My eyes open with a hope that in these early hours, I will hear the words the Spirit is breathing into me. It is a gift I am thankful for – though I do think that God could still have spoken after a chorus of my favorite wake-up music.

So what do we hear this day, this morning, as our ears awaken?

Prayer:  Dear God, Please help me to open my ears to hear the words you want me to hear this day.  In Jesus Name, Amen

Reflection Questions:

  1. What words do you need to hear today?
  2. What words could help you lean into making this a day of growth in your life?
  3. What words of peace do you hear as you go forward in your day?
