Karen, at This Old House, is hosting Project 24. For 24 hours, beginning at midnight, October 31, until midnight November 1, volunteers take photos that represents something about them. Here, the power has been off with brief spurts of on, making it a challenge to send Karen my photo. This morning, the power is on so, in a scurry, I’m fulfilling my obligation.
My mornings begin with basic necessities, followed by my morning meet-up.
All my life I’ve watched Daddy read five chapters of the Bible each and every day. He has a slip of paper where he records yearly when he’s finished his Bible reading and he’s now been reading his Bible about forty-five years! I’ve also watched as Mom studied the Bible, sometimes with a study guide on a particular book, other times the Word alone.
Joyce Meyer said, “Spending time with God is the key to our strength and success in all areas of life. Be sure that you never try and work God into your schedule, but always work your schedule around him.” Wise words indeed! I don’t know if my day goes any easier or smoother when I meet with God in the early morning but I do know I’m better equipped to handle my day.
So, most mornings, I have a meet-up with God..reading His Word, praying, listening to His Word via radio. There are some mornings, I’m sorry to say, I miss our meeting but, mostly, He and I spend morning time together. In the mornings, I read five chapters of the Bible and am currently reading about David and Saul’s contentious relationship and David and Jonathan’s loving friendship. Charles Spurgeon‘s Morning and Evening is included in my morning read as is a devotional from Joel Osteen‘s book Be A Better You. If your’re unfamiliar with Spurgeon’s Farm Sermons, please click here to read them…priceless!…but then, all his work is priceless!
Perhaps you can tell I, mostly, like “meat and ‘taters” but I also like a little dessert thrown in the mix. smile
I’m not sure how Karen fared in this storm so keep checking her blog for Project 24 progress. It was fun joining in and I’m curious to see the other 23 hours. Thanks Karen!
