The first waking moment

[Aside from my travel story, I had to share this.]

What is on your mind the second you wake up?

Where does your first thought land when your heart awakens. Does it land on worry? Your day's responsibilities? Do you sigh your way onto your feet, trying to be motivated to face the world? Is your first moment pulled into the day by the sound of a little one, way earlier than you would prefer? On different days, I can say 'yes' to all of the above.

Well, after reading this a few days ago by Oswald Chambers from this daily email, I'm trying to visualize this idea the second I wake up. It is making a big difference in my days.

Unless in the first waking moment of the day you learn to fling the door wide back and let God in, you will work on a wrong level all day; but swing the door wide open and pray to your Father in secret, and every public thing will be stamped with the presence of God.

That's what I want. Gonna leave it at that.
