Psalms: 1, 2, 3
Old Testament: Isaiah 40:12-22
New Testament: Ephesians 1:1-14

Pretty much how I looked this morning getting up

I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, for the Lord sustains me.
I am not afraid of tens of thousands of people
who have set (Psalm 3:5-6)

I totally slept in this morning…..hence the later post time :P….

But as I read today’s Psalm portions I was struck by a thought……what gets us moving in the morning???? What motivates us to make it through the day?

For myself–who is currently unemployed and waiting on the Diocese–one of the reasons I get up is to pray and do this blog lol :P……Sounds cheesy I know…..but it gives me something constructive to do while in the “in-between” stages of ministry.

Another thing that keeps me going is involvement in my parish life at St. Jude’s…..While I am not directly involved in many of the committees, the rector and congregation have allowed me to sit it on meetings and learn from their process 🙂

Also….(and I need to catch up on this very soon..I like to visit Kensington Village retirement home and visit with the residents. :). Sadly, I have not gone since before the holidays and my inner procrastinator keeps putting it off :P.

In all of this though, God is guiding me. I seriously don’t know what’s going to be happening in the next couple months….but I have to travel in faith that things will work themselves out. 🙂 It’s not an easy task, but one that is slowly teaching me patience.

So I leave the question with you…….what keeps you going in the morning? What are you passionate about??? What is the ministry to which God has called you? +
