8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life. Psalm 143:8
What do you think about when you wake up each morning? Perhaps you begin running through the day’s events. Maybe it takes you 30 minutes and a cool shower to jump start your thinking. Sometimes, though, we awake with thoughts of last night’s strange dreams, obviously influenced by what you read or listened to on the news or the internet.
Or how about this morning. What did you think about just prior to reading this post?
Countless studies have shown that what we think about when we go to sleep at night has a great impact on what we think about through the night and into the next morning.
I would encourage you to read a verse or two of scripture before you go to bed, and meditate on it. It’s certainly an easy enough habit to start and it will pay dividends over the years.
