How do you begin each God-given day? I once heard an interview in which the speaker suggested that making your bed first thing in the morning gives you a sense of accomplishment, thereby encouraging you to tackle the remaining tasks outlined for the day. That thought has stuck in my mind and has produced a feeling of, “Okay, I’m ready for what’s next!”

However, even better is beginning each day with a devotion. A Mustard Seed Devotion? Portals of Prayer devotion? A special daily devotion book? Using a schedule for reading the Bible in a year? No matter what devotion routine you use, it’s the best way to start your day — even better than making your bed.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, (2 Timothy 3:16).

May your daily routine begin with the Lord. The LWML home page tab “The Word,” the LWML app, and LWML On The Go Podcasts are excellent resources for starting good routines.
