This changed my life

Updated: Feb 13, 2022

"For I have come down from heaven not to do my will

but to do the will of him who sent me."

John 6:38

What's Your Morning Routine?

If you are like me, mornings are a battle of wills, mine vs. God's. But why?

For me, the "urgent" things in life get a grip on me. I know the morning is the best time to get things done. Typically, our energy & creativity are highest in the morning.

Let's Clarify...

So, now we need to clarify what the "urgent" things are.

MD5 taught us to prioritize the top 5% of our daily tasks that only we can do for the greatest impact in our day.

And our top 5% is not hard to determine because they are standard to every person.

1. Invest in our relationships with (God, Family & Friends)

2. Steward our (Body & Resources)

3. Cultivate responsibilities at (Church & Work)

This is Crucial!

The list is numbered for a reason. Failing to invest daily time with God, as the highest priority, is the difference between a self-centered & a God-centered day and life.

Once you prioritize daily time with God. Now, work for quality, self-less time by seeking His will, not your own.

Follow Jesus' Example

Jesus said, he came "down from do the will of him who sent me." (Jn.6:38)

He also intentionally started his day "very early in the morning" by getting alone with God in "a solitary place" and he prayed. (Mk.1:35)

A New Focus

I confess that I am finally learning to not only pray consistently but also pray selflessly, for God's will to be done, not my own. Because of the MD5 discipleship process, I am now aware that my relationship with God has been primarily self-centered.

Now I pray more like Jesus models, to do the Father's "will" and "work", not his own. (Jn.17:4 & Mt. 26:42)

God's Will for Our Lives

Develop this self-less habit and your life will reflect God's glory. And by his grace he'll give you ultimate daily purpose & production beyond what we "can ask or imagine, according to his power." (Eph. 3:21)
