Sunrise with God

Philippians 4:6

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."

Sometimes I used to turn the news on in the first hours before the sun was up. Lately I have changed my habits in those early morning hours because I found myself dwelling on the chaos in the world. Sitting alone with God as the first hint of sun appears has remedied the anxious feeling in my stomach before I start the day.  Turning to God first calms my thoughts, and He sets me straight. You see, He already has our days, and talking with our Heavenly Father gives me peace, confidence, and clarity of thought for whatever comes my way. Watching a Texas sunrise while conversing with God reminds me that I need to let my light shine brightly for Jesus Christ all over Hilltop!
