God gives you night and day, O Soul. He grants you rest at night. By day, he gives you a mind that seeks purpose and a body that lives to move. Thank the Lord for his wisdom. Respect his divine cycles for your life. Find him in the day, as you fulfill your obligations, and in the night, upon your bed. Meditate on his goodness. Let his Word enliven you. Pray at every moment. Ask to glorify him. Know what hour is now yours.

Awake, O Soul, on this Lord’s day. Be mindful that Christ died in your place. Be thankful for God’s grace. Be aware of the power available to you by the Holy Spirit. God’s family is your safe space. Increase in love for your brothers and sisters in the Lord. Meet with them frequently. Serve them with zeal. Give them priority above physical family and worldly friends. Our purification was to put us in communion with God and his children. We have fellowship with him and with one another. The first day of the week is for the Lord and his people. Let us eat the bread of peace and drink the cup of sacrifice.

Good morning, O Soul. This day has been given you. Make of it the best you may. Waste it not. Despise not this gift. Life is precious. Learn to live. For life, discover the only God. Draw near to him. At your door, the Lord Christ awaits to conduct you into his presence. About this would the Spirit speak to you in Scripture.
