The Evil Snooze Button...

Why is it that when you know what is good for you you don't do it?  You may even want to do but you don't. I think it boils down to the passage in Romans 7:

19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing.
20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.

I find it increasingly difficult as the week goes on to get up and have my quiet time.  I heard someone say recently that the "snooze button is evil."  I'm beginning to think they are right.  I set my alarm to get up, I want to get up and have my quiet time, but the snooze button beckons.  Ah, the limited pleasure of an extra 10 minutes of sleep.  But how does that compare to the eternal blessings of spending time with God.  It really doesn't.  I know this in my head.  I know this in my heart.  I know intellectually and I know this experientially, but I still hit that snooze button.  So let me get you to pray for me again  and pray for less slothfulness and more diligence in my quiet time.
