I woke up early today even though it is Saturday. On a weekend, it seems to make sense to sleep in, but my mind and body won't let me. I was alike, alert, awake and enthusiastic 5:30 am. But wait, 5:30 is sort of a sleep in because on weekdays I get up earlier than that ...
When I woke up, my plan was to have a nice quiet time with God. I had my Bible in hand and then I saw the laptop. Oh, I just had to check on one thing. The one thing led to another, and before I know it, an hour had passed and I still have not had any quite time with God. I clicked away from one website and social media site to another. Mind you, it wasn't a "waste" of time. I was "working" and I was "connecting with loved ones and friends". But still ... I wasn't "still before God", I did not spend time with God, and that my friend was a fail. It's a fail to try to accomplish so much without actually first spending time with the One who can enable me to accomplish anything and everything I need to accomplish for this day.
Ok, let me reboot. I am logging off and will read my Bible and will have a wonderful time listening to what the Holy Spirit wants to say.
A hiu hou!
