You say you want success. You say you want God’s best. But instead of blessed, your life is stressed. Here’s why it’s such a mess.
As goes the morning, so goes the day. Get the first hour right, you’ll have time to pray. Get it wrong and there’s a price to pay as the whole day frays into disarray.
Snoozers are losers. When you hit the snooze you choose to lose. Up before the sun and your day is half won. Five more minutes under the sheet won’t help you preheat, make your sleep complete, or start your day upbeat. Wash your face get on the feet or else you’ll likely face defeat.
When you wake up get up. Don’t hesitate, procrastinate, cogitate or marinate. Just initiate.
Once you get up, stay up. Make some motions, do your devotions, and you’ll start your day with the right emotions. When you wake up late you lose control. Get up in time to feed your soul.
I hope this rhyme sticks in your mind so tomorrow morning you’ll redeem the time.
