When I wake late I have lost hours in my day to maintain my home, time with God, and the blessings schooling is sacrificed. I feel so rushed to get things done that sometimes I am just so overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done. I have a to do list that seems to have more things added then crossed out. I have poor time management skills and I am praying that God will help me through this.
I have seen God working on me getting out of bed earlier because each morning when the alarm goes off I am up. I could get up and start getting ready for the day but then the flesh takes over. I always talk myself out of it and then roll over and back to sleep I go. I mean why get up when it is still dark out and knowing that the temp is in the teens' makes me want to cuddle in my bed longer. I do not like being idle and pray for strength to overcome this. So this week it is my goal to be up at 0600 each morning and start my day.
Ecclesiastes 10:18 "If a man is lazy, the rafters sag; if his hands are idle, the house leaks."
This scripture is one that I will be repeating to myself all this week and this scripture will help me fight in my idleness.
