Is it a 5 Hour Energy shot? Coffee? Exercise?
What is it that gets us up and going in the mornings? Regardless of the artificial nature of our pick-me-up, we all have times we badly need a little help.
The challenge is learning what provides a kick to the attitude. Consider the following:
Start the day with the Lord in prayer. Nothing helps the spirit more than pouring our hearts out to the heavenly Father. Speak from the heart and know He is listening. If there is a need to confess sin, then do so and let God remove the burden.
Follow up with reading the Word. Amazingly, we are not the only ones who needed a pick-me-up. David found himself in need of God. He expresses throughout the Psalms the value of God’s word, the meditation of his heart. The same works for us.
Provide a hand up to someone else. There are few activities that lift the spirit more than helping someone else. If we open our eyes and look opportunities abound. As we lift up others, our own spirit is lifted up.
