Why Get Out of Bed?

in bedWHY GET UP IN THE MORNING? It seems like time simply gnaws away at our lives one day at a time, leaving us little to show for our efforts, even our best efforts to accomplish good things. Looking at life this way can be frustrating and very discouraging.
A friend of mine and former nun from Scotland wrote a profoundly wise response to this: “Dear David, ultimately the important thing is not what you achieve for God but that you receive God’s love, that you love God, and that you love those around you as well as you know how. This is how you live as a Christian.”
Three awesome reasons to get out of bed!

Honesty

GO AHEAD…SHOW GOD SOME ‘TUDE. I’m pretty sure that God already knows what we’re feeling. What he really wants is for us to engage him WITH the truth of our feelings. So, like King David of old, let’s not be bashful about giving him some attitude now and then. Maybe some anger, some frustration,disappointment, or even exasperation. Or how about some laughter and thankfulness? Why don’t we shake our fists or do a little dance? Honesty is terrific for relationships!
