When you wake up in the morning what is the first thing that comes out of your mouth? For me, when I worked for a job that I didn’t really like I would just groan and wake up either super upset or angry because I had to go to work. I didn’t say one word to my King.
My Words Matter
Whether you know it or not, what you say first thing in the morning affects your entire day. The Father really started to convict me of this. I would start to deliberately make sure that my first words were “Thank You Father!” or “Good morning my King”. This really changed my outlook on my day (even if it is a Monday).
We all love those funny memes that talk about how awful Mondays are, or the cute ones with the kittens and puppies, but lets be real, Mondays are not that bad…
I guess what I am trying to say is, Mondays don’t have to be that bad guys! I know, I know, ya’ll are thinking I am crazy… Who likes Mondays? But I want to find a way to make my week better! So here is how!
Make my week Better
Change what you say first thing in the morning no matter where you are or what is planned for the day. Let you words be positive and uplifting to others. Speak life over yourself and others.Speak love ad joy over your day. I cannot tell you how many times I lay my hand on my husband when he gets up for work early in the morning with my eyes half shut, saying, “Give him strength, peace, and joy and please protect him.” I pray this under my breath every morning before he gets up. And I believe it makes a difference in his day. So remember to speak life over your loved ones in the morning because it is not all about us. The world today makes it look like we have to better ourselves or do what’s best for us not not think about others. The Bible clearly tells us to love our neighbor as ourselves, so remember to put others first in the morning even if you haven’t had your cup of coffee yet.
Lets take a picture!
I am guilty, so guilty, of posting a nice looking photo of my Bible and talking all about how others need to read it and blah blah blah, and when I finally post it on my Instagram I put my Bible away. I didn’t actually read it. I know I am not the only one guilty of that. So I have an idea, as a reward for reading a few verses or however long you want, then post the picture. Then we can look back and see accomplishment and know that we just actually read the passage we are posting about!
I know for some of you this is a hard thing to have, especially if you have children. I have my first on the way so I will experience it eventually. But what I want to say is you should have your quiet time with the Lord in the beginning of the day. I know this makes a HUGE impact in my day to day life. Whether you sit alone of five minutes and pray or put on some praise and worship music, listen to a sermon while you get ready for work, or sit down and read the word and journal. Whatever it is you have time for, do it. Personally, I listen to praise and worship and put on a sermon while getting ready for work in the morning and that helps me a lot. On other days I will read my word when I get home or on my lunch breaks. Whatever you have time for, do it! It helps you and your walk with the Father in more ways than you can imagine.
It is so important for us to start our day with the King of kings. Let’s have our morning coffee with Yeshua! That is one date you don’t want to miss.
