I Have A Confession

I have a confession to make today. I have caught myself a few times in the morning turning on my computer, checking my email, my facebook, or even my twitter before spending any time with God. My days sometimes are so jammed packed from 6 in the morning until 11pm at night that I can easily get caught up in my day before getting into the Bible or praying.

Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you.”

I have made a commitment to myself no matter how busy my day is before I turn my computer on in the morning, I have to read the bible and pray prior to. Even if it is just one chapter or a 5 minute prayer—the momentum will start and then it won’t just be one chapter but 4 and it won’t just be 5 minute prayer but grow from that.
I have also felt God telling me with my days so busy not to just have Him as a time slot on my calendar or something on my to do list but make Him every part of my day. So I have also committed to making sure that I am praying all day, like Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, to pray without ceasing. Praying in my car, praying standing in the line at Starbucks, praying during every part of my day that I can, and praying while standing in the line at Starbucks….oh wait I already said that one—maybe my second trip to Starbucks :-)

So my challenge to you today, before turning your computer on, read you Bible, pray and also make him every part of your day.

great post and so true!! Mine is to actually get up and not hit that snooze button! Spending the first part of the morning with him makes the day so much better.
