I get up, I work out, I get a giant glass of water, I pray, and then I set a timer for 10 minutes and I read my scriptures. That’s right, I have just shared how precise my life is. 🙂 Sometimes I skip the workout part, but without the prayer and scriptures I am SO miserable!
I don’t know how much of it is the ritual of the day, and how much of it s the actual scripture reading.
If you REALLY want to know how anal I am, I have a reading policy. Mon I read my lesson for primary and the scriptures I need for that, Tue-Wed I read for the Sunday school lesson, Thur I read for the RS lesson and Friday I read the Book of Mormon.
But I just have to say that I am really trying to think of an issue i have in my life before I start. I always find the answer, and I have a little notebook I write down my tidbits of inspiration in. This has been key for me.
Again, my mind is homeless. It wanders at will and without aim. I need to focus it if I want to to work for me.
The notebook and the thoughts help to do that.
So, do you ever read the scriptures? Do you find answers in them? For me that’s been the answer, but I know a lot of other people who have other books they read to center themselves.
Happy reading and centering. 🙂
