Why is it that it's so hard to "Be Still and Know" that God is God?
I wake up very early in the morning everyday. My internal body clock is set at 4:00 AM/ I must have been a rooster in my past life. No, not really because I don't believe in that. The point is I wake up every early and I have a full 2 hours to myself before my family wakes up. What I do with that 2 hours is entirely up to me.
This is what I think I should do in order:
Make my Chai Tea - 5 mins
Read my Bible while enjoying my chai tea - 5 mins.
Reflect and Meditate on what I have just read - 15 mins
Prayers - 15 mins.
TOTAL: 40 minutes. That's 40 minutes of quiet time and re-filling. A great way to start the day. It's 40 minutes, therefore I still have 80 minutes left before my family wakes up.
Next thing I need to do?
Exercise! - 30 minutes (an hour or more on the weekends). And while exercising, I can still continue my reflection, meditation and prayers ....
Now let's talk about what I really do during those 2 hours of quite times in the morning.
On second thought, let not talk about it. It's kind of depressing. It's embarrassing to know that I am spending the first 2 hours of my waking time dealing with the "urgent" instead of the "important".
This post is my attempt to make myself accountable. I starting anew. I am re-booting my life starting with rebooting my morning routine. Starting today, I am doing what I think I should be doing.
