We've Got Love On Our Side

Today is a lovely day.

This morning, I woke up early... 5:45ish. I went for a run. The air was so crisp and swirled around me as I jogged east down Samford Ave. It was still dark when I got started, but soon, I saw a large orange sun rising over the trees. I witnessed the most beautiful sunrise I've seen in a while. The clouds framed it just right. It was picturesque. I stopped in the cemetery to do some dryland exercises, and continued on my way. It was just so peaceful. I felt God.

I came home and sat out on our front porch to spend time with the Lover of my soul. I read in Isaiah, and he spoke a lot of truth into my life. I love this book. I was able to get a lot of good prayer time in, and made new notecards for the week, of verses and prayers.

Today is a lovely day.

Here's a song that's been frequenting my iPod speakers...

May my prayer like incense rise before You
I'm lifting up my hands as sacrifice
Oh Lord Jesus turn Your eyes upon me
For I know there is mercy in Your sight

Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You

To all creation I can see a limit
But Your commands are boundless and have none
So Your Word is my joy and meditation
From the rising to the setting of the sun

All Your ways are loving and are faithful
The road is narrow but Your burden light
Because You gladly lean to lead the humble
I shall gladly kneel to leave my pride

Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You

I will seek You in the morning
I will look to walk in Your ways
And step by step You'll lead me
And I will follow You all of my days
