Starting Your Day

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 1Tim 2:1

How do you start your day? I have often wondered if how I began each day had a direct impact on how the entire day went. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What about when you have breakfast for dinner?:)

I think one of the best things we can do as we start our day is to still our mind and our bodies and find our peace. To thank God for another day of life, and then to take the advice of Paul to Timothy and pray for people. I think about my kids, then my parents, my brother and my sister and the list goes on. I pray that Gods blessing will overwhelm them during the day and that glorious surprises would meet them. And the last person I ask God to work in is me. In my morning place of peace, usually with my feet dangling off the bed before I stand up to face all that lies ahead, I pray.

This week, try to start your day by interceding for others and thanking God for them. Bless your children and those you love. And toss a little prayer in their for you before the day unleashes its fury. I am certain that there is no better way to start each day then this. Oh, and breakfast of course! Have an amazing favor-filled day!
