starting the day...

"Entering the day without a serious meeting with God, over his Word and in prayer, is like entering the battle without tending to your weapons. The human heart does not replenish itself with sleep. The body does, but not the heart. We replenish our hearts not with sleep, but with the Word of God and prayer.” - John Piper

This quote completely changed how I look at my mornings. I always knew it was a good idea to do my devos early in the day, but never really thought it mattered. I'm so challenged now to get up early and spend time preparing for "battle".
