Begin each day with God
Et sic de similibus references:
A good way to begin each day is to begin with God.
It is far better than waiting until the end of the day and then having to beg God to undo the damage caused by doing things your own way.

Anything that does not begin with God will proceed without His help.
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence.

Arise each morning like the birds; singing praises to God.
1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
2 While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
