Well, I can't tell you much good news this morning besides the fact that I did study the bible this morning. Sadly, I laid in bed for an hour hitting the snooze button every 5 minutes. Yeah, that is a little hard to admit but it is the truth. So, Monday night I didn't pay about getting up and I could barely drag myself out of bed at 7am. Last night however I did pray. So does it mean God didn't answer my prayer because I didn't get up until 6:45 this morning. Nope!! That one is completely my laziness. I was awake at 5:30. I was awake every 5 minutes after that but... I chose not to get out of bed. I chose to be lazy. So, I have to deal with the consequences of finding time today to get on the treadmill.
I had read a scripture in the past, and when I say the past I mean like 8-9 years ago that left me a little confused about prayer. You see I had read Matthew 6:7-8 "And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him." And what I had stuck in my head was to not be repetitive in prayer. But after doing some praying and studying I know that God means for us not to just pray words over and over but to pray from our hearts. He wants me to be sincere with every prayer. Just saying words isn't what he desires. He wants me to pray in a way that is honest, true, and on my heart. So, if I am praying for something that is honest, true, and really on my heart enough to pray it often, that is ok. He knows my heart anyways and wants me to share it with Him.
Well, after two mornings of no treadmill I am not very pleased with myself but I want to fix that this evening. I guess we will see whether I choose to be lazy or not. If you have read any Proverbs, you know how God feels about sluggards so that should be my motivation...right?!
