Today, I’m inviting us to think about how we start our day spiritually. Wouldn’t you love to feel pleasantly grounded, clear-minded, and on-path all day? So what are your first thoughts in the morning, after you hit the bathroom? And what if you choose the best thoughts to start out your day?
Do you greet Spirit/ the Universe/ God in the morning? Have you ever thought of doing that? As soon as you come to some consciousness when you rise, this will set your whole day in motion. It will calibrate you with the Divine: with God, with Jesus, with the Living, Loving, Spirit of All Life. You will feel more “in the groove” all day, if you take a couple of minutes to do this.
I like to step outside, whatever the weather, for at least a couple of minutes, and greet God and pray a bit. I like to feel the weather and look up at the sky and give thanks for all the beauty I see. But perhaps you would like to sit in your prayer chair and read something quietly. Here is a short prayer I call “The Coffee Prayer”, that you can use and edit as you find most meaningful. Then post the version you have made your own, and use it every day. While you sip your morning beverage, you might like to read this prayer over a few times, then start adjusting the words to work best for you. Ready? Here is my version:
The Coffee Prayer
Good morning, Lord! I love you so much. I just feel the fullness of your love and grace in every hour. I feel Your hand in everything that happens. At the same time, I know that you have gifted us each with certain smarts and abilities. I know it’s my responsibility to hold up my end–to do my best every day to be the person you want me to be. I lift my coffee mug to you in awe and thanks and praise. In Jesus’ Name I pray: together, LET’S MAKE IT A GREAT DAY. Amen.
Let me know how you liked this idea, and what changes you made, for it to feel just right for you. Knowing your place in the Universe, remembering who you are in Spirit, and starting your day remembering that: now that’s Healthy Happy Loving Loving Lifesm!
