My day begins with three books and a Bible.

The first book I pick up is Your Best Life Begins Each Morning by Joel Osteen.

The second book is A Year with Jesus by Eugene Peterson.

The next one is Daily Readings from the Life of CHRIST by John MacArthur.

The last, but certainly not the least, and I will explain this tomorrow--is the NIV/Message Parallel Bible.

After studying the passage under consideration I lay my Bible down and turn to prayer.

I'm now ready to begin the day.

This works well for me, but I'm not suggesting this is the path you should follow. I mention it only because "inquiring minds want to know." Each of us has to travel a road that we can follow.

(Tomorrow, the Lord willing, I will review each of the books mentioned above.)

This sounds like a good, comprehensive Bible study plan.

I read devotions from "Our Daily Bread" every morning. Then I turn to my "Daily Walk Bible" and have been reading through Psalms (more slowly this time)and then prayer. It is such a habit now that I can't think of starting my day any other way.
Thanks for sharing your morning devotions with us,Clif.
