With my ongoing struggles to get up early each morning, this quote from Elisabeth Elliot really struck me. Because it is completely natural for me to roll over, hit “off” on the alarm and fall back asleep. It’s the most natural thing to do!
But I don’t want what’s natural. I want what’s necessary. This goes for any discipline one is working toward. Early rising, exercising, housework, etc. We must be the masters of our bodies, not allow them to be the master of us.
