#thirstythursday / my new 3 minute routine every morning

the daily Starr thirsty thursday

I’ve been reading a new book lately, Hello Mornings: How to build a grace-filled, life-giving morning routine.

If anyone knows me well, they KNOW mornings are not my cup of tea.

YEAH. My life feels like that most days!!

This book popped up on my Amazon account based on other books I’ve purchased and the description got my attention:

Are you ready to wake up for your life and not just to your life?

Don’t worry; you don’t have to be a morning person to start each new day well. Join Kat Lee and thousands of women from countries around the world who have learned to maximize their mornings. In Hello Mornings, Kat introduces a simple yet powerful three-minute morning routine that integrates Bible study, planning, and fitness into a foundational morning habit that fits into every schedule. She then helps you build each of these core habits for life-long growth.

Everyone can find three minutes. And instead of adding one more thing to the list, Hello Mornings lifts the weight off women by revealing a grace-filled way to establish a powerful morning routine that offers

  • a simple way to incorporate the most-sought-after daily habits into a simple morning routine: God. Plan. Move.
  • the latest research on habit formation and development
  • practical tools to help readers develop and grow their own personalized, adaptable plan for mornings
  • stories of transformed mornings from women in every season and stage of life

Hello Mornings helps readers renovate their mornings to establish and grow a powerful daily routine—a long-term, Jesus-centered habit to anchor them in every season. Each morning can then become a launch pad into God’s amazing plan for their lives.

“Everyone can find three minutes.” 

“Don’t worry; you don’t have to be a morning person to start each new day well.”

Those words JUMPED out at me.

YES! YES! YES!

I’ve struggled my entire life with a morning routine and finding a way to incorporate God into those stressful moments. I’ve gotten up early here and there for days and weeks at a time, but nothing ever became consistent in my life. And I felt like a complete failure when it came to starting my day off right with God.

“Everyone can find three minutes.” 

Yes, I can.

Here is the basis of the 3-minute routine:

This verse has been planted in my mind every morning for the past few weeks and I’m SEEING God come alive. I’m reminded on this #thirstythursday just how much He cares about the smallest details of our lives.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. – Psalm 143:8 NIV

How do you think our heavenly Father feels when we come to Him first thing in the morning acknowledging our love and trust and asking for His direction for the day? And guess what??? HE WILL ACTUALLY SHOW UP AND TELL YOU WHAT WAY TO GO!! How about that??? 

Not only do we seek Him first, we put action behind those words. We look at our calendar and prayerfully plan out our day. Then, we MOVE and find the energy to do what He has called us to do.

Here’s to waking up for our lives and not just to our lives, friends!

  1. This book has my name all over it! I don’t exactly have a problem getting up, but i don’t give God the time when i do get up. Hopefully, the positive effects would trickle down to the morning routine getting the kids ready for school as this is the real challenge! Grrrr

    • Girl. You are sooooooooo not alone in this. I feel like a failure each morning when getting my kids out the door for school. This is a real struggle in my life and I’m learning Little by little. I love that this routine is simple and based in grace and is more about creating a habit that becomes who we are. And I’ve seen first hand the past two weeks how He shows up when we simply invite Him along and ask for His guidance. You can do this!!!
