How I Keep Joy-Filled

Hump Day Happiness:
I usually like to share a funny little story with you on Wednesdays to give you a smile mid week, but today I want to share something that makes me happy every day!
I love to get up early to spend some time in my Bible, journaling, and in prayer.
Ok. Honesty check. I DON’T LOVE waking up early, but I do love being up before everyone else. My kiddos and hubby are usually still asleep when I stumble into the kitchen to grab one of my favorite mugs of coffee and sit by the window and watch the sun come up. It’s so peaceful. This time is like a balm for my weary soul.
It’s really the most important thing I do every day. It prepares me for a joy filled day and gets my heart in the right space to be able to face all of the challenges that a typical day brings.
If you’re a busy gal, it’s really hard to carve that time out of the day, but I promise it’s well worth it. Try to set your alarm 15 or 20 min earlier for a week. Spend a little time in your Bible or favorite devotional. Treat yourself to some precious quiet time, and see how this little change to your day can fill you up with joy!
Do you have a regular quiet time? How does it look? What does it do for your weary soul?image.jpeg

I love getting up before the sunrise too. And, let me tell you, it’s a lot easier to do when you go to bed before it sets. 🙂

I bet Caroline! I wish I had that kind of discipline, but I’m lucky to get in bed by 10:30 or 11:00. Im really working hard to get to bed a little earlier though! 🙂

Amen Bobbie, starting our day always putting God first. Love you articles and much love to you.
Have a blessed wonderful hump day!

Omiword, just started doing this a few months ago, and I feel exactly the same way! Still struggle on joy some days, but it’s a journey. If you’re interested to read my blog entry on basically the same thing, it’s here:
