Do you keep a notebook? Good.Jot down the first thought you have upon waking, whether or not it’s coherent.
The above was a bonus assignment given to us yesterday for this morning.
I was awakened by my alarm. I was trying very hard not to leave my bed to get ready for prayer this one day. I figured God would forgive me if I said my prayer after sunrise.
My mind split into two, there was a tug of war going on between them. One said, “Yes, Ranu, God will forgive you if you say your prayer after sunrise.”
The other the conscientious one kept buzzing, ” No He won’t so get up and get ready for prayer!”
I was already awake and could not bear to listen to the two minds, besides guilt overtook me and reluctantly I left my bed to get ready for prayer. In a way I’m pleased, I knew I wouldn’t be able to sleep while the good and the bad mind were continuing to argue.
This happens to be what I thought when I woke up this morning.
