Have you ever had one of those days that you wish you could just replicate several times over? Enjoying a good reflective day allowed me to understand with deeper understanding why that day was so great.
- Wake Up!
Have a scheduled time that you will wake up and actually wake up. When you start your day with an anticipation for the day, it certainly immediately helps your outlook for the day.
Let God speak to you! Have a time that you spend daily with God in the Word. If you do not have an appointment, you will not make it to this meeting. Generally, giving God the first part of your day means that He will give you a great rest of the day.
You speak to God. This is a time that you pray and fellowship with God. God created you and designed you for fellowship with Him, yet it is one of the hardest thing for most Christians to do. We live with God in mind rather than living with God on our mind. Instead of walking with Him, we walk ahead of Him and not allow Him to guide our every step.
Eat well! I’ve noticed that when I have eaten a good meal in the morning, I function better–my mind is sharper when I have started my day eating healthy meals.
Oh–I love to hit it hard at the gym. I really enjoyed working out with my wife. Lately, we have been running a few miles 5 days a week.
Enjoy your work. Work your job with passion.

Okay! So I was stretching it a little here, but I think you get the point. If you do not rest adequately, you will not be ready to utilize this pattern for the following day. As I see it, there have been much burn out in ministry by young, zealous Christian leaders serving our churches today.
