LOVE HIM IN THE MORNING
Love Him in the morning when you see the sun arisin’. Love Him in the evening ’cause He took you through the day. And in the in between time when you feel the pressure comin’, Remember that He loves you and He promises to stay.
When you think you’ve got to worry, ’cause it seems the thing to do. Remember He ain’t in a hurry, He’s always got time for you. So…(repeat)
I sang this song a ton growing up at church. There are hand motions and everything. I sat down to blog and the song popped into my head. I was worrying. I am concerned for my finances and work. I was drawing a blank on what to blog, then the song appeared. It seems like a simple camp song, and that is how I have always used it. Today, it’s truth and it touched my heart.
TRUTH: God loves me – “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” ~ John 3:16 NIV
TRUTH: God promises to stay – “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” ~ Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV
TRUTH: God isn’t in a hurry – “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” ~ 2 Peter 3:8-9 NIV
TRUTH: God has time for me – “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” ~ Jeremiah 29:12-13 NIV
Take time to think of other “simple” church songs. I bet you find powerful truths and promises that will lift you up.
