Get ready to get set to go - Warm Up # 3

It's Friday! 

Have you been getting up 5 minutes early? 

Let the Olympic athletes inspire you to exert the discipline required to open your eyes and remove your body from your bed, to move your body in just one way that is different today, and to visualize the one thing you will accomplish today. Say hello to God before you speak to anyone else and lay your day before him. Just the act of offering your worship through your daily activities will set the stage for a day of grace. He IS in the small you bathe a child or prepare a meal for your family, as you work in your garden or bring your best to your employer and clients. Today is a new day and we give thanks to the Lord! 

Something to consider...will you continue the challenge on weekends? Sundays? Is there a way to incorporate a family devotion time on the weekend in place of your early morning practice? What a wonderful way for a family to start a Saturday morning- perhaps a short walk around your yard, sharing a verse from the bible and talking about what you hope to accomplish that day.  

Remember to give yourself grace!

Being a Morning Ninja is Easier Than You Think…

The idea of waking up early enough to have a Bible study time, plan the day AND exercise can be overwhelming. You might think that you need to suddenly start setting your alarm for an hour earlier to get all done. Here’s some good news: You don’t.
The goal is simply to wake up early enough to have a “warm up” for the day. Just as all the Olympic athletes arrive at their event early so that they can talk with their coach, stretch, and get in the zone, we need to do the same for our families.
Maximizing your mornings with Bible study time, daily planning and exercise, is not as hard as you might think. It can actually be done in about 5-10 minutes a day and with minimal effort.
(Not that speed or minimal effort are a goal, of course. But if perfection is keeping you from getting started, know that starting simply is better than not starting at all.)
The key is to use simple starts in each area to get your momentum going. Once you have developed the habits of daily Bible study, planning and exercise, you’ll find it easy to go deeper in each area.
