I love my special time with the Lord! And I love having a computer available to type up posts on the spot!
But I just found out how easy it is to get distracted. I posted my verse for the day on Facebook, then got sidetracked and started to look at something else. Then the computer started to slow down and the next thing I know, I am completely taken away from the Lord.
Wow… DISTRACTIONS! Something I used to have had very little of. Now they are everywhere! Technology, kids, cleaning the house, work. (Okay, work is not exactly a distraction. It is a part of life.) But these are all things that take us away from the quiet time the Lord desires to have with us.
So what can we do so that we don’t neglect the most important Person in our life? We get up an hour early. We stay focused. We make our time with the Lord a part of our daily schedule instead of trying to fit Him in. We know what time we have to leave for work. So we know how to get up an hour earlier.
“But I can barely get up as it is,” is what I just read all your minds saying.
Well… you decide how important your communion is with the Lord. Your day will start off in a different light if you give the Lord a little time in the morning to speak to you. He’s got your whole day planned for you anyway, so why not start it off by giving your day back to Him.
“In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” (Psalm 5:3)
