More 5 AM Motivation!

A 5 AM Poem

by Dana

Late to bed
Early to rise
Out from the covers
Sleep still in her eyes


She needed to start
Her morning out right
With God's Holy word
And the Spirit's insight


With a mug in her hand
And a prayer in her heart
She knew what she'd gain
From her bright early start


Christ-centered thoughts
Strength for the day,
Love for her children,
To show them the way.


Respect for her husband,
And compassion for all
Who needed her attention
When they gave her a call.


If your spirit is willing
but flesh is too weak
The Lord said to ask
and you'll find what you seek


'Tis a gift to rise early

and see yourself grow
So come meet with the King
For you reap what you sew!
