My Morning Prayer: It’s Better…

My Morning Prayer: It’s Better…
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley, Meeting in the Meadow

It's Better...
Roy Lessin
It is better to trust and take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in man (Psalm 118:8 AMP).

It’s better to be corrected by truth than to find approval through deceit.

It’s better to be kept from sin than to sin and repent later.

It’s better to be pruned by the Vinedresser than be a wild and unattended branch.

It’s better to be content with a little than to have an abundance and still want more.

It’s better to be thankful in rough seas than to have quiet waters and be ungrateful.

It’s better to walk on foot and arrive at your destination than to ride a fast horse and get lost on the trail.

It’s better to be a “nobody” and be accepted by God than to be a “somebody” and have God turn you away.

It’s better to be absent from the body and be present with the Lord than to be present in body and absent from the Lord.
Happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) is the man who finds skillful and godly Wisdom, and the man who gets understanding [drawing it forth from God's Word and life's experiences], For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver, and the profit of it better than fine gold (Proverbs 3:13-14 AMP).

My Morning Prayer
-Marina Bromley

Lord, as I face this new week in this changing season, help me to remember that You created me to be happy—in Your Wisdom and understanding as I draw it from Your Word and the life experiences that You have carried me through. Help me to start each day sitting at Your feet, applying Your Word to my life, gaining that Wisdom and profiting from understanding. I can not receive it without taking time with You! May I clearly discern that my unhappiness is from worldly exposure and comparison and that You and Your Word are the remedy. May I prioritize trusting and taking refuge in You as I sit at Your feet. You are my all in all, and I need more of You. Thank You God for Your Holy Spirit who comforts me, and for Your Son, Jesus and all He has done for me. It's in His name that I pray. Amen.
