Day’s Beginnings

I read this on Ann’s blog this week, and it was so rich and so convicting.

“Eternal Father of my soul,

let my first thought today be of You,

let my first impulse be to worship You,

let my first speech be Your name,

let my first action be to kneel before You in prayer….

Yet let me not, when this morning prayer is said,

think my worship ended

and spend the day in forgetfulness of You.”

~John Baillie

Lord, may my every breath bring You glory today for that is my chief end.

  1. Amen, sister.
    It is so easy for me to just get up and go about my day and then read a bit before going to bed and before I know it, I’ve not spent any ‘real’ time with the “Eternal Father of my soul.”


  2. My dear Angie,

    May God’s grace, mercy and peace be multiplied to you in fullest measure.

    When I arise, my heart goes heavenward where my life is hid with Christ in God. What a hiding place, dwelling in Him and Him in me, one who has died to the law and been united to another

    I am a companion with those who love Him. Thank God for a heart that He has poured His love in through the Holy Spirit. This love gives us constant hope and is an anchor to our souls.

    God bless you,
