The Golden Hour. 8.4.11 & 9.13.12

Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. (Joshua 1:8 NLT)

I am a firm believer that the first hour of a persons day, is the most important hour they have. For it is in this "Golden" Hour, where the mental coordinates get set and directed for the day. Our thoughts, attitude, outlook, etc begin choosing their direction, positively or negatively, within that first hour. Fallen man’s natural state defaults to a negative view in facing his daily duties as he rolls out of bed, so the godly man knows the critical importance of taking the time to renew his mind and thoughts each day…washing them in the Word using truth, not error, to set his course for the day. Action. My sons…the most important life changing habit you can form is spending the first fruits of your day with God in His Word, renewing your mind, attitude, and outlook each morning. That first hour whether acknowledged or not…reinforces, good or bad, the thoughts and attitude that will be assumed for the remainder of the day. Days become years and before you know it you’ll have an outlook and attitude that will shape and define your life and the legacy of how you engaged Gods world.
