Works-For-Me Wednesday: Remember God First

As encouraged by our pastor, I decided to begin speaking to God first thing in the morning. Some of you may say, "What? You don't pray first thing in the morning?" No, sadly, I don't. I'm a terrible morning person, and I hardly speak to my husband, who is physically in my house. I'm not very good about remembering to talk to God until the first catastrophe of the morning strikes. And, then, I go to God with, "Father, I forgot to start this day correctly...."

I decided that I need a little reminder of some sort. I asked myself, "What do I do every morning, no matter what?" I go to the bathroom, and I'm sure you do, too. So, I taped a little reminder above my toilet paper dispenser. It simply says, "Remember God first." I know it's silly, but it works! God doesn't mind that I talk to him from the potty.

Sorry, no photo available. I'm not comfortable showing a photo of my toilet area on the internet!

That is a fantastic idea. I am not a first thing in the morning prayer either, but I desperately need to be. Thank you for sharing how you remind yourself to Remember God First. I think I'll tape mine to the coffee maker. I make coffee before I even go to the bathroom in the mornings. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day!

Definitely not a silly idea if it's working for you!

That's a great idea! My mom used to tape missionary cards around her sink area so that she remembered to pray for them while she did the dishes.
