~Monday Morning Meditation~
There is just something about getting up early, while the world around you is still quiet, and spending time alone with God.
Jesus left us a good example of this in Mark 1:35. It reads,
"And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed."
I know it is not always easy to get up before the littles, but it is so worth it. Once you have a habit of it, you'll find it much easier, and something you need and look forward to.
Find a spot in your house and claim it as your morning quiet time area. I have mentioned on here before, my spot has changed from the couch, to the dining table, to the coffee table, and now I have a small desk in the kitchen. I LoVe my spot, it is a special place where I have no distractions. No lists of things to do, nor reminders of appointments. Only my bible and study material. A cozy blanket and a sweater stay on my chair.
Try it for a week! I just bet you'll not regret it!!
"But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee." Psalm 5:11
