First thing to do when your eyes open in the morning is to greet the Lord.
It only takes a few moments to commit your day and whatever it holds as you place the day and your life into His Hands. And often you only have a few moments to do that since many days begin fast and furious, especially if you have babies or toddlers or kids to tend to as soon as the sun is up (or even sooner than that in most cases!).
Why? Because of this saying that has been going around the internet for quite awhile:
Be the kind of woman who, when your feet hit the floor each morning, the devil says, "Oh no, she's up!"
Yup, get your day going in the strength and might of the Lord so that at the end of the day — no matter what happened from the moment you got out of bed until you climb back into bed — you can thank the Lord for all of it.
It really is a great habit to get into - make the Lord first!
