Help, I’m not enjoying my morning devotions anymore
I feel my morning devotions are becoming a routine. I have discovered the power of habits and have decided to practice them in my Christian walk. I don’t just want to study the word when I feel like it, so I decided to block out time in my day for study. I believe there are several examples of great people in the Bible who practiced this. I have found out however that my morning devotions are becoming less pleasant for me as I conform to this practice. If I am being blunt, it is starting to feel like a chore. My devotion used to be a very refreshing time when I was doing it spontaneously now it is starting to feel like an item on my to-do list that I have to check off. My problem is that when I leave myself to act spontaneously I go for long periods without doing it, now that I am doing it with discipline too I am not enjoying it. Any advice for me?
