It has been said in every church I have ever attended, you have to wake up and give your 1st moments of the day to God.
I am guilty of not doing this all the time. It has become difficult these past couple of years. I have been dealing with flare ups from Fibromyalgia. I never know if I am going to wake up in pain or not. I have allowed my pain level to decide what my mood is going to be for the day. This practice has led me to thinking about my aches & pains, instead of praying & reading my Bible or devotionals.
This week I have started to be intentional with waking up and talking to God. BUT! I have to stop picking up my phone 1st & checking the time. Once I pick the phone up, I see my notifications & go check my emails and whatever else is staring at me. I know I am not the only one that does this…. Lol. I have to do better. I am a work in progress but at least I am on the right path, again.
I know from experience when I talk to God 1st and read & share the word, my day is just better all around. I have to stop being distracted by the world. I have to dig in deeper.
