up before the sun
I love being up early. I love being up before my wife and my kids and the sun. It's just a peaceful time to read God's Word, think, pray and write. It's before all the demands of the day get a chance to start pulling on me. Just like I give my first dollars to God through tithes, I can give the first minutes and even hours to God by being up early. Yeah, I give up some sleep and some mornings it's really tough to get out of bed, but it's become a habit. A habit that I love and is helping me grow closer to Jesus a little bit at a time. Never underestimate the power of incremental living. Very small steps toward or away from Jesus add up powerfully through a lifetime.
