Try Thinking of God Before You Get Out of Bed — A Quote by Gregory Boyd in “Present Perfect”

“I too have found the practice of surrendering the first moments of waking consciousness to God to be profoundly helpful. At first it was hard to remember to practice the presence before getting out of bed, but I now find that, more often than not, God is automatically the first thought on my mind. For ten or fifteen minutes I lie in bed and simply try to remain aware of God’s ever-present love. After this, I preview my day in my imagination and offer up everything to God. I typically follow this by praying for whatever people and needs that pop into my mind.”
