“I saw more clearly than ever, that the first and primary business to which I ought to attend every day was to have my soul happy in the Lord. The first thing to be concerned with was not how I might serve the Lord, how I might glorify the Lord, but how I might get my soul nourished and in a happy state. I saw that the most important thing I had to do was to give myself to the reading of the Word and to meditation on it.” Can you guess who said this? (Initials G.M.)
Someone else recommended starting the day by arranging a bunch of flowers, and I can see how that would also put you in a good frame of mind for arranging the rest of the day.
But for me, putting Scripture in my mind right away is the most reliable way to fill my soul with the hope and confidence of true, deep happiness.
What’s your secret to making yourself happy first thing in the morning?
