Facebook before God's Book?

You opened

before God's book today?

How is your day going?   Are you frustrated, feeling anxious, or just getting by?  Do you feel like you can handle anything that comes your way?  Did you find encouragement and guidance for your day on Facebook that will get you through anything during the day?

I am not saying Facebook is bad I just think that many of us get up in the morning and grab our phone, notepad, or go on the computer before we think about it.  I know my day does not go as smoothly when I have done this.

God's word and time with Him at the beginning of your day is so much better than starting your day with Facebook.   When I start my day with God first I feel like I can do or handle anything!   I have confidence that he is with me and I look to him for help throughout my day.

Here is a great verse to start your day:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding…”
- Proverbs 3:5

Think about it - if you do not go to God first I challenge you to
  • start your day in prayer asking him to guide you through the day
  • read a few verses - you don't know where to start?   Google verses to start my day,  or open your Bible and randomly pick a verse
  • keep a journal of verses and prayers including answered prayers
If you take the challenge let me know what your think after a few days?   Does your day seem to be better? 



  1. Nanette, you're right -- spending time with God is the best way to start the day. And it can be the start of an all-day connection with Him, too. I need Him every hour! (remember the song I Need Thee Every Hour?)

  2. Cheryl, Thanks for the comment and yes do remember the song.
