If I don't spend some time in the morning with God - it usually doesn't happen. Not that I don't talk to Him during the day...I do! But they are short little blips about whatever I might be thinking about at the time. I'm talking about quality time to thank Him for another day and for all the blessings that He has allowed to come my way.
Over coffee, Dean and I usually read out loud a devotional of some kind. Right now it's a great little book by W Phillip Keller called WHAT IS THE FATHER LIKE. This morning we read chapter 4, I Am Mercy. Paints a picture of how God is the only One in all creation that could have possibly forgiven us for our wrongs...even though we make the choice to accept His mercy or not. He still shows His mercy, grace and love to us constantly...for instance, in the rising of the sun! Even though the book was written at least 14 years ago - it's application to today's crazy world fits peerfectly.
