Sunday Musings | First Breath of Morning

I met author Kathy Cheek a few months ago and picked up a copy of her 90-day devotional, First Breath of Morning, to read in my quiet time. "First Breath of Morning is an invitation to the relationship God wants to have with each of us."

The title of this beautiful devotional reminds us to wake and experience God with our first breath each morning. While I'm not consistent with having my quiet time first thing in the mornings, I do think it greatly improves our day if we wake and spend a few moments with the Lord, simply asking for guidance for the day and thanking Him for our many blessings.

I enjoyed the devotionals in this book, the stories Kathy shares about her own and other's lives, and the poems she's scattered throughout (one of which you can see I added in the margin of my journaling Bible above).

This devotional has six sections/themes - Morning Invitation, The Seeker, Deep Abiding Love, Faith's Journey, Never Alone, Worship - so it is easy to pick up and flip through for whatever topic you may be drawn to on a particular day. I especially enjoyed the Morning Invitation and Worship sections and think the Faith's Journey and Never Alone sections are perfect for someone going through tough times. I definitely recommend this devotional!


  1. Quiet time in the morning can be so nourishing - glad you've found something which speaks to you and helps shape your day :).
