361/365: How To Start Strong

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.  ~ Psalm 143:8

If you want to get your new year off to a solid start, then you should start with a firm grasp of where you want to end. To do this, try something completely crazy - let go of your future. Release your grip. Focus on today.

Open your hands and give your future to God.  Listen to His spirit through prayer about living each day pointed where He is leading.

Start the habit of beginning each day with prayer to intentionally give God your plans. He will shape them, establish them, and give them back to you.

Remember: God first, you second.
