Good morning! I love stopping by Like a Warm Cup of Coffee for motivation to start my week - you might want to stop by - she's having a giveaway too!
I keep trying to find the motivation to get up early to spend time alone reading the Bible and praying. I haven't been doing it as much as I need to! My hubby helped me get up early twice last week and I so appreciate that help - use your loved ones to help motivate you!
As I was reading my devotional Streams in the Desert today, I saw some words that further motivated me to keep on working at getting up early. It said:
"Earnestly desire to get alone with God. If we neglect to do so, we not only rob ourselves of a blessing but rob others as well, since we will have no blessing to pass on to them. It may mean that we do less outward, visible work, but the work we do will have more depth and power. Another wonderful result will be that people will see 'no one except Jesus' (Matt. 17:8) in our lives."
Wow! A powerful reminder of why it is so important to spend that time every day! Thank you Lord for giving me words I needed to hear!
Matthew 6:6 - "But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly."
I hope (with the Lord's help) to spend more time alone with Him this week. How about you? Have you been finding that time?
Have a blessed and motivating Monday, friends!
