Routines can be helpful. Routines can also become a hindrance. We can get in a rut and take things for granted. Often times we make the huge and important decision to follow Christ but then, over time, fail to make further decisions to stay on the correct path. It is beneficial to make a decision every day to deny ourselves of the things that keep us from God, take up our cross and make sacrifices and then follow Jesus.
Lord, give me the strength to deny myself and pick up my cross and make a decision each day to follow You.
