More Jesus in My Day

More Jesus in My Day is a new feature you'll find here at my blog every Thursday. Designed to lead you straight to the Savior, each short post offers simple, practical ways to know Him more.

The moment you open your eyes in the morning, while your head still rests in that warm spot on your pillow, acknowledge Jesus. He is right there, waiting to greet you. Give Him your first waking moments, and allow yourself to linger in His presence.

Let your heart listen for His voice, and tell Him that your heart and ears are open to hear Him today. Invite Him into your day before you swing your legs across the mattress, before your beautiful feet touch the floor. Watch and wait for Him to speak first thing in the morning...and all day long.

In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare a prayer, a sacrifice for You and watch and wait for You to speak to my heart. (Psalm 5:3)

What a lovely reminder. I always thank God for my health the minute I wake up!

This is such a great habit to adopt. I've been doing this for several years, and it's such a wonderful way to start the day. I ususally just speak to the Lord, giving Him my day and asking for His protection and guidance, etc. I need to take time to listen for Him, too!


So simple, sweet and practical, Julie.
Thank you.

I have heart problems. Every morning I wake up is a bonus and the first thing I do is thanks Jesus for another day. This has been my practice for the last 10 years. Nothing like ill health to make you grateful for every day God gives you! Blessings!

When I'm not so doggone tired, I LOVE the early morning and the quiet except for the birds singing. Oh, and of course, my dog begging to go out. Then I sit with my coffee and Bible and relax. :)
