Putting First Things First


This morning I woke up in my normal fog through hazy eyes, stumbling around while Superman got ready for work. I've never been a morning person and I'm not sure that will ever change even though I get up early with him!! :-)

Superman on the other hand, IS a morning person! He wakes up at the crack of dawn even if he doesn't need to and starts shuffling around while I lay there like "why?!" Lol!!

But I can't sleep without him anyway so I get up and start our morning routine which usually starts something like this! Coffee brewing, Bible reading and reading our two daily devotionals together.

For over a year now we've been reading from the same two... we really enjoy them. The one is called "Experiencing God Day By Day" by Henry Blackaby (thanks Church at Lockeland Springs for that Fathers Day gift last year) and the other is "God Calling" by A.J. Russell.

Then we finish by going down a written list of prayer requests and praises. We've found that consistency in prayer is so important... to come to God with requests each day, and praise for answered prayers and, well, just because! Lol! We try to keep a prayer journal of answered prayers too because we don't want to forget all those miracles but we've been slacking on that lately. :-/

I feel like it's such an important part of our day but also our relationship.. starting the day with God and each other before the kids even wake up. It reminds me to put first things first, even if I'm still half asleep and just going through the motions some days... other days it gets me motivated and thinking about the One who is actually in charge of the day :-) Lest I forget! Lol!!

Do you have a morning routine that helps you get focused and have clarity each day? Mind sharing?
