What gets you up in the morning?…

A desire to check off items from the to – do list?

A recipe for burnout.

What gets you up in the morning?…

A desire to accumulate riches, honors, and personal gain?

This shrine to self is built on a shaky foundation.

What gets you up in the morning?…

Cruising through the day not much thought why?

Those are shallow waters to swim in.

What gets you up in the morning?…

We exist for the PRAISE of God’s glory.

How do we praise God with our lives?

By being the best “you” that “you” can be right where God has placed “you”!

Doing all for God in thanksgiving and praise for the gift of life He’s given you.

Even the smallest and most mundane occasions in our daily life become a gift of love back to Him.

Sweeping the kitchen floor…presiding over a business meeting…taking out the trash…exercising…making meals for the family…taking time to talk to those who cross our path…8  hours at a desk job.

All given to Him…for Love of Him.

What gets you up in the morning?

The Apostolate of Daily Life!

Morning Offering Prayer:  Oh my God, I offer You all my thoughts, words, actions, joys and sufferings of this day in union with my Lord, Jesus Christ.  I want to make each of them an act of perfect love giving constant witness of You to those around me. “

“In Him we were also chosen, destined in accord with the purpose of the one who accomplishes all things according to the intention of His will, so that we might exist for the praise of His glory, we who first hoped in Christ.” Eph 1:11-12

  1. This is wonderful–it’s always enriching to come for a visit with you! I do so love the little tyke at the top–I’ll bet that’s what I look like to God, in the mornings (maybe all day long!) God bless you abundantly!

  2. Too often we get out of bed and drone on and on about having to get up to early, having to go to work, sleeping the wrong way, etc. Way to remind us that it’s simply a blessing to be able to get up at all! Be blessed :D.

  3. Hi fromtheheatofj, thanks for your message I always love your focus it’s not about what the world promotes or even others but your own heart. I too are very much a heart person even when getting up in the morning, for many years this has been at 3am, but I mostly go to bed early so still sleep quiet well.

    I love the early mornings, no doorbells or phones rigging and later the birds singing , it is when I do my Devotions on the Blogs, I’m greatly blessed having you all as my Blogging Christian family, sometimes your Blogs are my evening Devotion . Blogging is also my Job I commited it to The Lord and work 8 hours a day with connecting to Blogs all around the world, I have lunch etc and take time for shopping and home resposibilities so an early start is great. As Ron cannot always be with me, having people to share with is wonderful and I thank God for you all.

    Christian Love Anne- Ron sends his blessings too .

    • My you are a morning person! I too love the quiet of the morning..God seems so near then in the quiet unfolding of the day. that is beautiful Anne how committed you are to the ministry of Christian blogging…it is a wonderful way to evangelize isn’t it and support others on the walk towards home. blessings.

  4. Hi–I’ve nominated you for the “Genuine Blogger Award”! Seems I’m having tech difficulties with the link thingies–or maybe it’s wordpress this time, since it works on some, not others. Anyhow, have an excellent weekend–God bless you!
