There’s something to say about meeting with the Lord early in the morning before the world has a chance to inundate our minds with junk. For the past 30 some years the Lord and I have had a date at 5 AM around the kitchen table. Why so early? First, I want to give the Lord my best, not the left-overs from a hectic day when I’m way too tired to concentrate. But more importantly, it sets the tone for my entire day if I’m in the Word first not last.
