Get Right Up in the Morning
Do you not know that in a race the runners all compete, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win it. – 1 Corinthians 9:24
Fasting means going without food, right? Well, it can also mean going without something else, like those few minutes you stay in bed on a school morning after your alarm has gone off. Tomorrow, try getting right out of bed after the alarm rings the first time. Offer those moments in thanksgiving for all the time Jesus went without sleep so that he could pray or heal the sick or travel to the next town. Give thanks to God for the goodness of rest and for the comfort of a warm bed.
