How do I know today is going to be a good day? Because I’m alive! The Most High saw fit to wake me up this morning and for this I am thankful. Today I want to take you through a few steps that I do consistently in order to have a good day.
Prayers & PraiseI pray and praise daily. I try to thank the Lord as soon as I open my eyes because I believe God should be first. This method does not always work and sometimes I find I’ve been up for quite a while just doing my own thing and then I’m like, “Oh, I need to pray right now.” I always exalt His name and say hallelujah. Prayer and praise does not have to be elaborate and no one else has to be involved, just you and God. I always pray to the Most High God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob just to keep my mind on track. Prayer and praise is the best way to start your day. Humans require fellowship with the Most High and He enjoys the fellowship. Scripture tells us that God walked with man and He never walked with another creature that we know of, He loves us! Starting our days off with this spiritual connection is paramount.
Make Your BedI was raised to make my bed and clean my room daily. I’m so thankful to my parents for making sure my chores were always done and my bed was made before I went to school in the morning. For me, making the bed provides a sense of order and accomplishment. I just love completing micro-tasks! Some benefits of daily bed making are:
- order and tidiness with the largest item in your bed room
- a sense of accomplishment
- setting a good example for you spouse or children
- a well-made bed to come home to after a long day
