Choosing Each Day: God or Self?Sample

Choosing Each Day: God or Self?

DAY 1 OF 3

How do you wake up most mornings? Do you use an alarm of some sort? Do you hit snooze once, twice, seven times? Do you lie in bed to “thaw out” for a few minutes or do you get right up? There are many ways to wake up, but most of us probably lie in bed for a moment to orient ourselves.

We have a choice to make every day, every morning when we wake up. Will it be God or will it be self?

It's amazing how quickly we prioritize making schedules and to-do lists in our thoughts. How often do we think of ourselves first and then maybe later at some point give a passing thought to God whom we proclaim as Lord and Savior?

What about you? What is foremost in your mind and heart when you wake up? Who comes first? As you start the process of waking, do you think about your day and all that is before you? Do negative feelings or thoughts arise?

Once you get out of bed how do you spend the thirty or sixty minutes of your day?

Over the next couple of days, we will look at a practical way we can choose each day to be less self-focused and more God-focused, choose to put God, His Word, and prayer before anything else.

Begin today by taking a moment to identify the things, the thoughts, the activities, or the emotions that can consume you and keep you from worshipping God and serving Him.

About this Plan

Choosing Each Day: God or Self?

The battle between choosing God or choosing self begins the moment we wake up in the morning. This plan provides a simple step to help us choose each day to trust, follow, and serve the Lord.

We would like to thank Thistlebend Ministries for providing this plan. For more information, please visit:
