Controlling Your Mornings
What is the first thing that you see in the morning?
What is the first thing that you hear in the morning?
Is it bad or good?
We control whatever our eyes see and whatever our ears hear.
Last Sunday morning while I was tuned in to my church Zoom service, my daughter texted me that she wanted to speak to me urgently.
She said that she heard that one of her high school friends had suddenly passed away.
It so happened that we had just prayed for the family of this young girl whose life had come to an abrupt end, but I did not know that my daughter was acquainted with her.
It was a sad situation that no parents should ever have to endure.
After reading a few bible verses of comfort to her and praying for her the bereaved family I returned to the Zoom service.
About an hour later my son woke up (he is a late sleeper) and as I mentioned to him about the death of the young lady he said that he already knew about it.
I wondered how he knew, but before I could ask him, he told me that he saw it on Facebook and Instagram.
So I asked him if Facebook and Instagram are the first things he looked at in the morning and his reply was yes.
So I shared with him that whatever he sees or hears first in the morning will determine if he has a good or a bad day.
If the first thing that he hears is bad news then this will affect his emotion, appetite, and ultimately his productivity for the day.
Therefore, to ensure that he has a good day he should make sure that he begins his morning in the right way by praying and reading a bible scripture.
I told my son that praying can consist of only a few words of thanksgiving to God for allowing him to see another day.
A Bible verse can be any Word that the Holy Spirit place on his heart.
Because the Lord knows what lies ahead of us He will always give us the right Word that will prepare us for whatever news that we might receive later.
Facebook and Instagram promote the things of the flesh.
Their goal is to advertise their products whether personal or business. They do not care about your personal well being.
But God has always sought to have a personal relationship with you because He has a great plan for you.
Since the Lord has your best interest at heart, then give Him first preference in your life and let Him be the first person you see and hear in the morning.
