Why Its Best To Spend Time With God First Thing

Being a working mom, I have to manage my time effectively. I know that I will be at my job for about ten hours/ four days a week( not counting weekend work). I know that my son likes to go to bed around eight or nine p.m, maybe even earlier if he had a big day. I also know that there is cleaning and working on blog posts, podcast episodes, and so forth that needs to get done.

I know that I am not alone in all of this. Call me crazy, but I have found that I need to wake up at 4 a.m for my own sanity. The times where I have put off talking to God until it was time for bed, were misery. I was grumpy, little things got to me, and I just felt on edge. The worst part is that by waiting until evening, I wasn’t giving God all of me.

For my own sanity, and to keep my relationship with God strong, I have to spend time with him in the morning. I need to talk to Him before I walk out of my home, and interact with the outside world. If I wait until evening then I’m liable to be so tired from work and too busy with trying to keep Silas entertained.

I want you to take this time out and reflect on how your day is going. Did you talk to God today? If the answer is no, then I want you to try talking to Him first thing tomorrow. It can be a two minute prayer or an hour prayer. What matters is that you seek Him first thing, and then reflect on how your day went. You shouldn’t be so quick to anger, and the little things will just roll off your shoulders.
