What If You Were Married To A Morning Glory?




Psalm 57

To the chief Musician, Al-taschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.

1Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: For my soul trusteth in thee: Yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, Until these calamities be overpast. 2I will cry unto God most high; Unto God that performeth all things for me. 3He shall send from heaven, and save me From the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth. 4My soul is among lions: And I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, Whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword. 5Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; Let thy glory be above all the earth. 6They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down: They have digged a pit before me, Into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah. 7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. 8Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. 9I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations. 10For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, And thy truth unto the clouds. 11Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: Let thy glory be above all the earth.


Just imagine that you had a spouse like David, a morning person. There is no hope of sleeping late with this person around. These morning glories wake up with a song in their heart that just can’t be contained.

“It would be sweet to awake to some silence”, might be a common thought if you had a significant other like David. It could be annoying, I am sure of it!

Perhaps you ask, “What brings you to this observation, Bald believer?”

7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. 8Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. Psalm 57:7–8

David fixed his heart and determined with all his might that he would not allow the light of morning to wake him but rather he would wake up the morning.

David would grab his harp and and with all that was within him sing praise to his God!

“But David, others are sleeping still. You may not be alone!”

Psalm 57:9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.

Waking others up isn’t a concern to a person like this Psalmist, in the morning they just have to get their praise on!

Personally, I could understand the annoyance of living with someone like David but still I like the thought of bringing in the morning with praise.


I want to be this way!


Singing isn’t my talent and stringed instruments are not my skill, but I at least want the clicks of my laptop keys to play out a song of praise to my wonderful God and Savior. I want to wake up the morning and remind the day to get up and worship my Lord.


By the way, the most amazing thing about David and his morning music is the location from which he sang. Look at the header.

To the chief Musician, Al-taschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.

He was hiding in a dark cave, running from a man that wanted him dead and yet he fixed his heart to wake up with worship.

Father help me to praise you even in the dark and uncomfortable caves of my life. Help me to wake up and celebrate the life you have given me despite my circumstances. Empower me please, to wake up the morning singing worship songs to you. You have saved my soul and I want to rise ready to celebrate that conversion. It’s going to require a lot of coffee Lord, so I ask for that too! Amen
