Before

7 Mar

I push the snooze button.

I hurriedly pack my lunch and grab a granola bar on the way out the door.

I frantically search for my keys.

I rush into my day because I stayed in bed a (few!) extra minutes.

I write my lesson plans.

I teach my second graders the difference between a common and proper noun.

 I grade that stack of papers.

I try to go it alone and accomplish the lengthy list of things to do,

May I realize that I can’t serve effectively until I’ve spent some time with You!

  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Matthew 6:33
