What’s the first thing you do each morning? Hop in the shower? Wake the kids up? Hit the snooze button to steal another 5 minutes of sleep? Turn on the TV? Get some high octane coffee brewing? And after that, what does your morning routine look like? Does it include spending some time with God? Checking in to get in sync with Him. . . to find out His plans for your day. . . to find some peace and refreshment amidst a chaotic world?
Here’s the challenge: Beginning tomorrow, have your cup of coffee with Jesus. . . get up just 5 minutes earlier and use those 5 minutes to connect with God. Try reading a Psalm a day or a few paragraphs in a Gospel, but make sure that each morning you’re spending at least 5 minutes with your focus on Him. I’m going to check back with you next month and see how it’s going! For I am convinced that those of you that are seeking God with all your heart will find Him! (Jeremiah 29:13)
