SOMETIMES YOU CAN MAKE BIG LIFE CHANGES WITH LITTLE EFFORT. THIS IS HOW I CHANGED MY LIFE WITH A 5 MINUTE MORNING PRAYER.
I’ve heard the same thing over and over, blog after blog, statistic after statistic, even video after video. I kept hearing that all millionaires and successful people have a morning routine. They begin their day with healthy habits.
🙄 Yeah, that sounded great and all but it just was not something I thought I could keep up with. And guess what y’all ….I was right. I (like most people) have a very hectic schedule and having a morning routine seemed impossible. I just did whatever worked best that morning. I have 3 different self-employment incomes, so my mornings depended on which one I was going to work on that day. In general I just left the idea of having a morning routine on the back burner.
Time passed and life went on. Until I was watching a YouTube video by Adrienne (Bailon) Houghton where she said she began every morning with just 15 minutes. 5 minutes to pray, 5 minutes to write, and 5 minutes to read the word. She talked about how it helped her accomplish her personal goals. I thought “well that kind of (kindddoofff🙄) sounds simple”. But it still was not simple enough that I thought I personally would or could keep up with it long term.
Like am I really going to be getting out my little handy dandy notebook every morning to write when I first wake up?
Fast forward a few weeks later I hear khloe Kardashian on TV telling her sister starting your day with a prayer of graditude will change your entire day.
So I decided praying was something so simple. I wasn’t going to start a full blown morning routine that I wouldn’t stick to but instead just spend 5 minutes of my morning praying.
Once I began praying in the morning my life changed. I began by saying I’ll pray for 3 things every morning. First I start the prayer off thanking God for what I do have. The second thing is I begin praying for others. Thirdly I pray for myself and the things I want for my life.
I’m not one to rush results, I know things take time but I saw a huge difference in my life the second day I prayed!!! I was going through things personally, emotionally, and it was enough to weigh down on my mood daily. Praying helped me get off to a good start. I felt like I had already made a positive impact on my day. I felt in control and spiritually relaxed.
Matter of fact I am writing this blog after one of my morning prayers!!! I see the things I am praying for coming into my life. Something so simple has not just made dramatic change in my mornings but the entire day that follows. I now get more things done on my to-do list. I feel more confident praying to God throughout the day because if I started the day praying, why not continue when something comes up? There are too many other life improvements to write that happened by making this small and easy change.
I have tried so many things and the solution was so simple and ….it’s God.
