Every day I will praise You and extol Your name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise.” (Psalm 145:1-3)
2. Talk to God.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water,which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.” (Psalm 1:1-3)
4. Maintain meaningful relationships.

“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” (Hebrews 3:13)
5. Surrender my life to God.

“I die every day ...” (1 Corinthians 15:31)

“Then He said to them all: “If anyone would come after Me, He must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.” (Luke 9:23)
