Yesterday I began the first day of my last semester of high school...and I find that I am ready to be done with school forever and ever! :) But I know that my attitude will not change toward my tasks for the rest of my life, if NOW I choose to think of them as grueling, miserable wastes of time!
My goal is to wake up every morning with a love for God and for the life He's given me; to be filled with excitement for the day ahead and the opportunities to praise Him that may arise! But so often, this is not the case. So often I wake up and think, "Lord, I don't want to get up! Let me sleep another hour!"
I need to deprive myself of sleep, and be diligent in what I MUST do. I MUST have a joy in doing my tasks and revel in "whatever I do, bringing glory to God." Every thought a prayer, every act a sacrifice, every word a song of praise!
May math be my incense, government my melody, and laundry...my humble ministration of service to You!
I don't want to look back on these days and months as a waste, as a time when I went through the motions. May I look back and remember the devotion to my God that permeated EVERY AREA of my day, every area of my life!
Soli Deo Gloria!
