Why, if God has sacrificed ALL, can't I get my lazy butt out of bed at 4:30 am to give him my attention? He died for me....is it really that much for him to ask of me?
My selfishness has once again separated me from my Father.
I woke up this morning feeling very alone, and while sitting in church today, this came to mind and I wrote it down on my program:
His mercies are new everyday!
While I am still feeling sad today, I know my Father is merciful. He will see me through.
I need to spend some time on my knees, crying out and asking for forgiveness.
I need to understand why I think it's okay to just try to "get by" when it comes to God- when I know he requires more of me.
Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
This is the song my heart is singing to the Lord today
Update: God has shown me this morning( Monday) that I can get up later than I think to spend some time with Him!!
