Start Better Mornings

Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. ~ 2 Thessalonians 3:16

Most of us see the morning as the beginning of the day. But if you are on the traditional schedule, by the time we wake up, we are nearly halfway through the day. The start of a new day is at midnight. And the bible tells us in Genesis that the evening came prior to the morning, and the two made the first day.

Preparing for our best days does not necessarily begin in the morning. Our best days can start in the evening.  There are things we can do in the evening to ensure that our morning is not a time of confusion or worry.

Prepare clothes for work/ school – Prepare your power outfits in the evenings. You will know ahead of time if something is missing or not quite the right fit.

Meal prep your breakfast/lunch and snacks – 20 minutes in the evening goes a lot smoother than 20 minutes in the morning

Put things away, (dishes, clothes, toys) – no need to wake up to last night’s clutter

Get to bed earlier – Set a time to shut everything down, including television, smart phones, social media and the lights. Our bodies and brains deserve those hours of uninterrupted rest

Pray and Trust God – Trust that even in our sleep, He is working on our behalf. We take our hands off everything and know that God will take care of us

What can you do this evening to make tomorrow morning an even better morning? Things to ponder as you  enjoy your coffee and power up your day!
