Think Right First Thing

In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5:3

I myself find the best time to get alone with God is in the morning. It is kind of like exercising. If I do not do it first thing it is harder to be motivated later in the day. One advantage of doing it first thing is it sort of prepares your mind and heart for the day ahead. Your thoughts and mind are turned to Him and His word so it is a good way to start 'thinking right first thing'. 

Try this. Put God on your calendar. Do not schedule everything else then forget about time alone with Him. How can a person know anyone without spending time one on one with them? Same holds true for knowing Jesus. Sunday being spoon fed  by a pastor or priest is not the answer. You have to do it yourself on your own. 

Do you want a renewed peaceful mind? Try getting up and casting your cares on the one who loves you more than anything. 

PRAYER: I choose today and every day to let you have first place in my life. First place before Facebook. First place before the morning show or news. First place before the newspaper. Help me stay disciplined and learn to say no to things that take my time from you away. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. Becky: I love the song. Although I haven't heard it for a while. You are right when you say we have to schedule our time with Jesus. On days that I can't do this, I feel brought down.
