Wake early … before the rest of your house.
Light a candle.
Grab a cuppa.
Settle into your favourite chair with your Bible on your lap.
Give Him the first part of your day.
Really listen to people.
Look into their eyes.
Hear their heart.
Resist the urge to hurry.
Life is missed – moments are lost – when life is a blur.
Slow to truly enjoy the life He’s given.
Now that you’ve slowed …
Open your eyes.
Notice the beauty in each God-given moment.
Count the gifts.
Once your eyes begin to take notice, count the blessings.
Keep record of the ways He blesses.
Hurts are inevitable. People make mistakes. And when they do …
Drop your baggage.
Refuse to carry past burdens into future days.
Live in the freedom Christ offers.
Stand in grace.
Spend time doing what you love.
Create art with music, words, paint, dance …
Take a bold step after God into the wild unknown.
Follow hard after Him.
Do not get distracted by the glitz and glamour of this world.
Fix your eyes on Jesus.
