Starting your day with a something inspiring and uplifting can really put you on the right track. We all need to start our day in the right frame of mind. To do this, I like to sit down and read a devotional each morning shortly after I get out of bed. It has turned into a good habit and one that I think you would benefit from as well.
As you look into a new year, you may ask yourself what could I improve on and what have I been missing? Perhaps your spiritual side has been going undernourished. A devotional can speak to your soul and not take a lot of time.
Devotionals that I have used and would recommend are:
My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers
Great Is They Faithfulness by Larry Burkett
Our Daily Bread by RBC Ministries
Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon
These devotionals are inexpensive, easy to get, and can be used year in and year out.
