Good Morning God!

January 11, 2015

 

“Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name, worship the Lord in holy splendor.”

Psalm 29:2

It seems like a lifetime ago, but the memories and songs from church camp came flooding back as I read the Daily Text Watchword for the week. In my youth, attending bible camp at Luther Point in Grantsburg, Wisconsin meant making new friends, songs around the campfire, camp food, and morning worship.

One of the songs we sang as we gathered together in the chapel for morning worship was a song titled, Sing Good Morning God. What is most memorable about this song is the refrain, which rings out…

Sing good morning God, good morning God

But not good God its morning!

Sing good morning God, good morning God!

Oh God it’s a beautiful day!

The Psalmist invites us to sing Good Morning God! Daily and express our love and gratitude to God for all that the Lord has done and is doing in the world today.

Often it is too easy for us to get involved in the busyness of our days an forget this invitation to “ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name.” Some of us may even want to roll over in bed, hit the snooze button a half a dozen times and then have to rush through life.

I want to encourage you to find time in your day, to “Sing Good Morning God” and “Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name.” I try to start my day with the Daily Texts, which is a devotion of Bible verses and prayers for each day of the year. You can find out more about the daily text at www.MountCarmelMinistries.com . Of maybe you can check out God Pause, which is a daily e-devotion from Luther Seminary. Find out more at communic@luthersem.edu . What ever you do, don’t forget to sing, “Good Morning God!

Just another Passing Thought!
