We get a look at Jesus going about life in Mark 1:29-39, and one of the things we see is Jesus getting up early to spend some alone time with God. This got me thinking about my time with God--the when, where and how.
I'm a pretty consistent morning engager and I have my own unique routine. I get up, take my shower, come downstairs and fix breakfast and then as I'm finishing up eating, I open up my Bible and start reading...But, not before getting some chunky peanut butter on a fork! I don't know what it is about that peanut butter, but I just crave it as I read my Bible. (I know, strange.) Now I haven't always been a morning reader but made the switch from evenings to mornings a few years ago because how I felt (tired) and how my day went were impacting the consistency of my reading. I still miss some days, but having a morning routine has really helped me.
So when and how do you open the Word and spend time with God? We're all different, so I'm curious to hear what works for you and why? Tami W.
