These encouraging Bible verses will give you the uplifting boost of truth that you need in the morning. Great routine to start for life. Beautiful thoughts and ideas on the words of Jesus.

Five years ago, I wrote that it was impossible for me to get up early and have quiet time. I was working evenings, starting around 4 and ending around midnight, and getting up an extra hour early just seemed totally out of my reach.

Then something miraculous happened.

I accepted a job that required “normal” working hours during the morning and afternoon. I started taking my kids to bed around 9pm and falling asleep and staying asleep.

And then, suddenly, I was able to get up early for the first time in my entire life.

It makes so much stupid sense to me now, but back then the concept was completely elusive. If you go to bed early enough, you can get up at whatever time you want.

Duh. 

But earth shattering for me.

So now, I usually take my kids to bed around 9pm, and I usually read for 30 to 60 minutes in the dark of their bedroom, and then I go to sleep myself, almost always by 10 but definitely by 10:30. Then I wake up between 6 and 6:30 (usually before my alarm) and I start my day.

And it is very good.

I love my new habits.

As I have said before, I almost always start the day with quiet time during which I read the Bible (I'm working through the One Year Chronological Bible right now and keeping pace with the new year so far.), pray using my prayer box (more on that in another post), and sometimes write in my journal (but not consistently).

Something I've added recently is meditating on a scripture. I love scripture, and I have a lot of favorite verses. When I say I meditate on it, I read it through three or four times and then think about it while I begin my day. I let it play like a song stuck in my head, trying out the words and stressing different ones and saying it to myself.

My internal monologue might sound something like this:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

I keep processing through the verse like this, repeating it to myself over and over and over with different emphasis until I know it backwards and forwards. 

I repeat the verse to myself as I prepare my breakfast, as I eat, and as I clean up my dishes. I repeat the verse as I sit down in my office to begin my workday and then whenever it pops up in my brain throughout the day. 

That's what I mean by meditating on it, just repeat it over and over again like a song on repeat.

I have chosen the scriptures below for a variety of reasons, but mostly because they are uplifting and encouraging and inspiring words from God that give me the right start to my day.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. -Psalm 139:14
