So get this.
When you give thanks to God, praise and adore Him, turn your focus to Him each morning, you are literally changing the landscape of your brain!
When you turn our thoughts to God, you are using your MIND. Your MIND influences your BRAIN literally!
Your brain generates hundreds if not thousands of new brain cells daily. Combine this with the impact of taking thoughts captive (2 Cor. 10:5) and being transformed through the renewing of your mind (Rom. 12:2), and you have a RECIPE for JOYFUL, PEACEFUL living.
So often in the Bible, God encourages you to give thanks. When you give thanks you cannot complain, worry, or fret simultaneously. Serious moments of thanksgiving and adoration of God push away darkness and anxiety, rewiring your biological brain and renewing your mind.
What better time to give thanks than when you first arise each morning?

Did you know there's a Bible verse that pleads with God to put a guard over our mouths and to keep watch over the door of our lips? (Psa. 141:3)
Boy, do I ever need that kinda support! And not just one guard. Heck. A whole army would be much better! We might as well call in the troops!
Our words are so powerful, and when we get to the point of actually speaking what we are thinking, we bring REALITY to those words and thoughts as they usher in life or death. So, of course, we want to exercise caution.
But. It's. Hard.
Fortunately for us BRAIN CHANGERS, we've got a good shot at not letting those rogue thoughts escape our lips if we learn and practice the art of taking thoughts captive. We learn to stop them in their tracks!
Recently as Rico the MorKY and I were taking our daily stroll around Midway, we reached the top of the pebbled path winding around Walter Bradley Park near the back of the elementary school. Our ears perked up, catching laughter bouncing around in the air off to our left.
...melodies so sweet, spontaneous, natural, and overflowing with sheer delight that steadily rose to meet the stunningly blue, cloudless sky....
Upon seeing three young children rolling, tumbling, giggling their way down the side of a slight hill, my mind flashed back to my own children delighting in such an adventure. Then I thought of myself. Why, I could also remember rolling down hills!
"Go!" my sister squealed, and together we spiraled, bumping, thumping, and trying to hold the proper form to master the fastest roll.
