First Thing--God

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Psalm 108:1-2

"My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn!" (Psalm 108:1-2)

What a motivating message and example David provides through his opening verses of Psalm 108. Our day can start with joy and a hope-filled heart when we're intentional about making our first waking thoughts and actions about God.

Why is filling your mind with God so important first thing in the morning? When you think of God, pray and/or praise Him with your waking thoughts and words, how does it impact your day? Tami

Thank you for this reminder Tami. I get caught up with looking about me so often that starting my day in God's presence gets pushed to the back burner. This morning I woke up singing "Great is Your mercies towards me" yet I did not start my worship session, instead I got up and headed straight to the kitchen. Had I been intentional about going into my worship session with God, it would have been the first thing I did this morning. He deserves to be our first thoughts in the morning. I really needed this reminder this morning. Thank you,

Thanks,Tami and may God bless you,richly!!

Filling my mind with God is so important first thing in the morning so my day will start on the " right' foot!
And to fill my mind with God I need to read His Word and pray!

I need to intentionally every waking morning to think of God in pray/praise and to able to see how it does impact my day!!
I am sure that I will NEVER be disappointed if I do!!

Alot to think about.
How I start my day is important to me and to my Father in heaven.
Every day I have to decide.
