Since reading this book several months ago, I have been getting up at 5am each weekday to do my devotions. I can't say it's been easy, especially the first month or so. Having a coffee maker with a timer has helped a lot.
Other than the obvious benefit of having a committed time to read my bible and pray each day, there have been additional changes in my life due to this habit.
I have become an early riser.
This morning I awoke to the sun shining through the windows and the birds singing and I thought to myself "wow, I must have slept in really late this morning," only to look at the clock and realize it was 6:06am.
And I was wide awake.
On a Saturday.
I don't mind becoming a morning person, it's actually kind of nice having an early start to the day.
The only real downside to rising early is that I am now absolutely exhausted at 9pm each night.
