I’m very lucky to have a bedroom window that faces east. On clear mornings if my schedule permits it is a spirit-soaring experience for me to just sit and watch the magnificent beauty outside as the sun rises. It is something I wait for in the dark…and I often repeat the line from Psalm 130 that touches me this morning:
My soul waits for the Lord more than sentinels wait for the dawn.
Encapsulated in that verse is the longing of a lifetime and a reason to move forward into each day when living for the Lord is an ever-present goal.
