To live healthy and happy it’s important that we take enough time out for study and prayer to keep our spiritual mindedness thriving. It’s part of loving ourselves as a child of God.
For instance, most people, while getting ready for a new day, will show love and care for themselves by getting their body cleaned up, brushing their hair, and putting on clothes that are fitting for the occasion ahead of them. The love and care they show for themselves, will be noticed and appreciated by others all day long, and they will feel better about themselves for the time they took to be prepared.
The same rule applies to keeping our thought in a good place. It is not okay to go out into the world with a grumpy attitude, a negative outlook or a darkened sense. These evil states of thought are like getting up in the morning with a stinky body. They need to be addressed, eliminated and replaced with inspired spiritual thinking that enables one to glow with love, express buoyancy, joy and gratitude all day long for all the good God is doing for them and others.
To keep our thought in a good place takes effort and commitment, just like the effort needed to keep your body clean and properly clothed. Success requires some time out of our regular schedule to do the job well. It’s part of loving yourself so that you can enjoy the best life has to offer.
Love yourself today! Accept that you can take time out to listen, pray and feel close to God. It’s the most important part of getting your day started right.
You’ll be much happier for it, and so will others around you.
