This is my to-do list. I am a champion list maker! Checking off my list one by one leaves a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. Do you do the same? This one though, this one is special. Every single day, my heart is whole because of the Lord. Every single day there is so much to be thankful for.
1. Spend time with Jesus.

4. Be honest about my sins.
James 4:10 ~ Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
5. Think of others.
Philippians 2:3-4 ~ When you do things, do not let selfishness or pride be your guide. Instead, be humble and give more honor to others than to yourselves. Do not be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of others.

8. Read God’s Word.

I have taken Your words to heart so I would not sin against You. Lord, you should be praised. Teach me Your demands. My lips will tell about all the laws You have spoken. I enjoy living by Your rules as people enjoy great riches. I think about Your orders and study Your ways. I enjoy obeying your demands and I will not forget Your Word.
9. Do what it says.
James 1:22 ~ But be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
10. Let Christ lead me.
