I absolutely love my mornings!
My perfect morning routine changes as the years go by and consumes many of the morning hours, but when laid out, it looks pretty simple.
Drink water and take minerals.
I love this simple routine of mine, especially since I’m able to do it automatically without even thinking about it. And sometimes the first half hour or so I’m still half asleep, so I’m totally running on manual.
This has become my perfect morning routine.
The thing I love about routines is the simplicity of them. Humans are creatures of habit. Routines require very little thinking and planning once you set them in place. Therefore, routines can be a good resource to eliminate stress and overwhelm.
Sometimes life can throw you off course though and it doesn’t matter how good your routine is, it just isn’t going to work. That’s when learning to be flexible and creative gets to become a part of your life.
But for the most part you’ll probably be able to stick to a routine, so while searching for a good morning one that works for you, it’s good to keep in mind Matthew 6:28-29
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
One of the greatest routine we can add to our life is that of giving our burdens to the Lord. Every time something comes to mind, giving it to Him will fill us with peace and allow us to rest.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:6-7
This is taking control of our mind as 2 Corinthians 10:5 says.
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Routines are great, but taking your thoughts to God at all times will bless your life in ways that habits never will.
The perfect morning routine can set you out on the right foot and make a huge difference in the way you’re able to handle the day, so I encourage you to find one that works for you, in the season you’re in right now. Don’t worry about the future, routines can always be changed. That’s when creating the habit of taking every thing to Jesus can really help you transition to a new one.
