There’s nothing I enjoy more than a fresh cup of coffee and my Jesus time!
Every morning after I get my daughter off to school, I sit down with a fresh cup of coffee and my Bible. For me, the morning is a fresh start, a quiet place, where I can truly hear what the Lord’s Word is saying to me. Before the clutter of the day fills up my mind, I can truly be focused on His presence.
Mathew 6:6 teaches us this:
When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
What better reward is there than time alone with our God? Below I have listed out 5 websites with free devotionals and inspiration for any phase of your life.
THE FIRST 5 APP
First 5 is one of my favorite apps! It was created by Proverbs 31 Ministries. It’s a quick 5 minute devotional to start your day. The app allows you to create a reminder so your first 5 minutes of each day starts with Jesus.
You can see their app and a ton of other inspirational content on their website HERE.
