I'm realizing the root of the problem. I am selfish! I should go to bed early so I can get up early. But when the time comes I think, "But this is MY time. I haven't had any ME time all day." When the alarms go off to pray I think, "I can't stop what I'm doing now. I'm right in the middle of it." Because making dinner or sending an e-mail is so much more important than stopping to pray for people who don't have a Father or for mother's around the world who are desperate to provide for their children. Gag me!
My time does not really belong to me. It is a gift that I get every day. It's my job to look to God to know how to use it. Lord help me!
"God forgive me for thinking too highly of myself
God forgive me for thinking too lowly of myself
God forgive me for thinking of myself so stinkin' much"
