Morning Routine

When you wake up in the morning what's the first thought that crosses through your mind,
my alarm is set for 4:30am weekdays
and i have been waking at 4:30 for the past 6months
i guess when i open my eyes
i try to remember what day it is,
if i had picked out the outfit for work the previous night
i thank the lord if there is light
and sigh if there isnt!!!!

jump down from the bed and try to will myself to exercise
then take my bath
hurry to dress
wake my parents up for our morning devotion
and then am off to work
therein lies the problem
i didnt pray...
i didnt remeber to Thank God for making me open my eyes that day...
he is not part of my morning routine
the morning devotion with my family doesnt count cos half the time we are all asleep
and time with God is meant to be personal, and during the morning devotion everything is general, you cant start a personal prayer between you and god about your day and the problems you might be facing
(you cant pray for your boyfriend that's miles away studying while kneeling down with your parents lol)
or for your friend that just lost her dad, who is going through so much right now,

How many of us start the day without him,
how many of us forget that he is the reason we are breathing
i am guilty of it
and i have decided to schedule me-time with God daily....
read my bible and give him due praises!!!

have a great week people

I think you can pray no matter where you are
You can in your car when you are driving
Or when a stupid idiot is trying to distract you...
