I have been attending church since I was seven years old. Since then, I can’t even keep track of the amount of times I’ve heard my pastors tell me to start my day with God.
I always understood why they were saying that. It makes sense, to start your morning off with prayer or reading your bible. It seems logical. But that’s all I thought. I didn’t really do much more regarding it. At least not then.
As I’ve grown up and recognized how integral God’s role is in my life, I’ve seen how important starting my day off with him really is.
It gives me the security to go about my day, knowing that a real, true, and meaningful conversation with God marked the beginning of my day.
These conversations are never the same. I used to think that they had to be, that I didn’t know the script that everyone else used to pray. How was I supposed to do this correctly if I didn’t know what was right?
But as you grow up and keep up your walk with the Lord, you learn what is right for YOU. Nothing is ever the same, and I know that from experience. Sometimes the talks I have with God are shorter, more like check-ins, where I share what I am feeling, what I am thankful for. Other times they are a lot longer, where I am asking for guidance or help, when I am feeling a little bit more alone.
No matter how you’re feeling when you sit down to pray, no matter what you decide to share, one thing is always certain.
He knows what you are feeling, what you need and what he has in store for you. Even if you take a bit longer to share something out loud with Him, he knows what you need.
He has a path outlined for you. So start your mornings with God and soon you will see how your conversations with Him grow over time.
