do some shoving in the morning

“The moment you wake up every morning, all your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job of each morning consists in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other, larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in.” (C.S. Lewis)

Shove back:

  • thoughts that you should not go to church
  • thoughts that you are too tired to serve
  • thoughts that your children do not deserve grace today
  • thoughts that your spouse does not deserve love today
  • thoughts that God doesn’t care
  • thoughts that God isn’t in control

& remember:

  • that God made you to fellowship with the body of Christ
  • that Christ served you by bearing the penalty for your sins
  • that God shows tremendous grace towards you each and every day
  • that you never deserved love, but God showed love towards you anyway
  • that God cares for you
  • that God is completely Sovereign. He is in control, not man
