On those days when things look drab, lonely or even boring, remember, each day is a new opportunity! So often, we need only stop just a second and actually think about our first thoughts. How easy is that? But, really, how often do we actually do that before we start our day with an automatic, routined schedule?
Just taking a bit of time to Stop, Look and Listen to what is actually rolling around in our heads can do a world of good. What is in there? Good things, bad things, ugly things, pretty things, schedules, to do lists? Lots of thoughts and pictures can be swirling about, such as leftovers from the previous day’s activities, or events that have yet to happen !
Just like the water that swirls and tumbles down over the smooth rocks in a stream, our thoughts can come rushing down all over our day! Let’s take pause and as Paul said in the bible; take these thoughts captive and examine closely what they are telling us. 2 Corinthians 10:5 Just how are they influencing the beginning of our day?
Starting our morning with prayerful thought can make the difference between a strong start and a weak, haphazard day.
Do you have a routine in the morning that includes giving your thoughts over to God? How do YOU get each day started?
