Thoughts for the Quiet Hour - January 1
Come up in the morning … and present thyself … to me in the top of the mount. —Exodus 34:2
My Father, I am coming. Nothing on the mean plain shall keep me away from the holy heights. Help me to climb fast, and keep Thou my foot, lest it fall upon the hard rock! At Thy bidding I come, so Thou wilt not mock my heart. Bring with Thee honey from heaven, yea, milk and wine, and oil for my soul’s good, and stay the sun in his course, or the time will be too short in which to look upon Thy face, and to hear Thy gentle voice.
Morning on the mount! It will make me strong and glad all the rest of the day so well begun. —Joseph Parker
