What is the first thing on your mind when you wake up in the morning? I'm embarrassed to admit that my first thoughts have not been very godly.
This carries over to other parts of my life too. When I'm faced with the unknown, my first thought is to worry about the worst-case scenario. When someone has hurt me or not acted the way I think they should, my first thought is to criticize or complain.
What would change in my life if my first thoughts were of God? Instead of wondering who sent an email, I awoke with wonder of what God was going to do that day. Rather than worry or complaining, my first thought was to pray. What if my first thought of the day was Good Morning God, I want to see You today, and my last thought of the day was, Thank you Jesus for your blessings. Do you think my first thoughts would have any impact on the rest of my thoughts? I do. That's why I've been praying that God would give me new thoughts.
Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.
What are your first thoughts?
