"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you" - Psalm 143:8a
There are many ways to start the day. I love starting mine with God while sipping a hot cup of tea. I have found that putting God first honors Him and in turn blesses me. It’s a win-win!
My favorite way to spend time with God is to read His word. Some mornings I open the Bible randomly and start reading from that place. However, most days I will choose a specific part of the Bible to read. If you have not read the Bible before, John is a great place to start!
I also enjoy reading the Bible by topics. In the back of most Bibles there is a subject guide. If I want to read what God says about certain topics, this is where I turn. Topics include things such as forgiveness, hope, love, and suffering – just to name a few.
I do not always put God first each morning; I am a work in progress! But I've noticed, that if I wake up on the wrong side of the bed, after I have spent time with God He helps me start the day on the right foot.
On a side note, how “darling” is this mug?! My boyfriend Connor surprised me with it! Boys take note…I’ll be writing a post just for you guys soon.
Thanks for reading and have a blessed day!
