early will i seek thee
"A smile from Jesus in the morning will be sunshine all the day." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
"On the first of May in olden times, according to annual custom, many inhabitants of London went into the fields to bathe their faces with the early dew upon the grass under the idea that it would render them beautiful. Some writers call the custom superstitious; it may have been so, but this we know, that to bathe one’s face every morning in the dew of heaven by prayer and communion, is a sure way to obtain true beauty of life and character." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
"The morning hour carries gold in its mouth." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
"Early rising has the example of Old Testament saints to recommend it, and many modern saints having conscientiously practised it, have been loud in its praise. It is an economy of time, and an assistance to health, and thus it doubly lengthens life. Late rising is too often the token of indolence, and the cause of disorder throughout the whole day." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
"The old proverb declares that they who would be rich must rise early; surely those who would be rich towards God must do so." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
"A child of God should not leave his bedroom in the morning without being on good terms with his God." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
"Our first word should be with our heavenly Father. It is good for the soul’s health to begin the day by taking a satisfying draught from the river of the water of life. Very much more depends upon beginnings than some men think. How you go to bed to-night may be determined by your getting up this morning. If you get out of bed on the wrong side, you may keep on the wrong side all the day. If your heart be right in the waking, it will be a help towards its being right till sleeping. Go not forth into a dry world till the morning dew lies on thy branch. Baptize thy heart in devotion ere thou wade into the stream of daily care. See not the face of man until thou hast first seen the face of God. Let thy first thoughts fly heavenward, and let thy first breathings be prayer." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
