Every time my Dad takes the train here, it is scheduled for arrival at 5:50 am. That means that I have to wake up and get ready a bit earlier than normal. So, that’s what I did. However, I was in and out of sleep for the last few hours. He texted me a little after 5:00 and said there was a delay. It is now going to be a bit more of a delay than anticipated.
I decided to go ahead and get partially ready and enjoy the quietness of the house. When you have 4 kids in the house regularly and 7 when they’re all together, you cherish silence. I am reminded why the writers in Scripture and preachers of years past wrote about rising early to pray and be with God. There are no distractions. Not many people are contributing to social media. It’s peaceful.
There is a song that impacted my heart several years ago. We do not hear much from this group anymore, but they were very much a part of early contemporary Christian music. The group is NewSong, and the song is “Before the Day”. Let the words minister to you.
