Since God will be my end
Let Him be my beginning.
So that I may now fully live
Instead of falling, straying, sinning.
Lord, help me to accomplish great things for Thee by doing the little things that lie at hand.
As the minister stepped up to the pulpit he discovered to his chagrin that he had forgotten his sermon notes.

It is easy to follow a person’s footprints if we walk close behind him, but if we walk some distance back, we might fail to see them as clearly. Similarly, if we follow close after the Lord, we would easily see the footsteps along the way, but if we try to follow afar off, we would find it difficult to know the path of His will.
No one has any more time than you have. It is the discipline and stewardship of your time that is important. The management of time is the management of self; therefore if you manage time with God, He will be begin to manage you.
