Around 0538, my only alarm goes off. I quickly roll from the bed to the pile of PT's on the floor, and dress. Grab my tennis shoes and socks and walk to the door. Usually by then, I turn on the first light and prepare my morning notes for my 0600 daily meeting. Drive to the meeting,...after the meeting some PT, then back home to the shower.
I use Suave shampoo, and some new funky body wash with my 'womanly' loofa (lu-fa) sponge. Due to Jessica's encouragement. I brush with Colgate and Oral-B. Shave with Barborsol and Fusion (Mach 4), then put a little Old Spice Cool in the pitts. Then....press a magic button on my Nespresso Machine, and within a couple of seconds have a Polish Pottery cup steaming hot with a Caramel Macchaito, for .55 cents. No ellaborate breakfast.
By then, I have somehow put on my ACU's and socks, but not my boots.
I wait,...I grab my Tabletalk (Daily Devotional) and sip and read. When done, take the time to kiss my wife, grab my briefcase/lappy bag and head out.
We all have these routines. Mine is probably not that much different than yours. But out of my 17 hours of being awake, that was 1/4 of my day. Have I thought on how to minister to people at my 0600? Have I taken any moments to fulfill the Great Commission as a believer? Do I care? Am I thankful? Or do I give the excuse that I am just not a 'Morning person"?
Do I start glorifying Christ at 0900/9:00AM,...if so, I think I am missing something?
What do you do that makes this time Christ honoring? How do you glorify God, fulfill the Great Commission in the midst of eating the bowl of cereal and 2% milk or skim?
