It’s Wednesday of a 4-day work week, and my first day in the office in two weeks. Here’s how I plan to get through the day:
Romans 12:11 says:
11Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.”
23Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men,
24Knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [real] reward. [The One Whom] you are actually serving [is] the Lord Christ (the Messiah).
It is Jesus who I get to serve today at my job! 🙂 Yee. THAT truth makes it all ok.
This morning I awoke at 4:30 am
Could be for any number of reasons I suppose
But if I tell myself it’s because I’m sick, or hungry or something else
Then I’ll try hard to fall back asleep
And instead, lie awake
Then eventually roll out of bed at 6:30
As my friend Peach has said, there is a difference between sleep and lying in bed, eyes closed.
So today I got up–not right away, but sooner than I might have
To ask Him why He woke me up so early
As the Good Book says, “The Lord gives to his beloved sleep”
I reminded Him of this
But it appears He also gives to his beloved sweet verses in the Scriptures that can get us through the day better than sleep can
And that is more than ok by me
Though if He wants to let me doze off again while praying
That is more than ok too
I’m my beloved’s and He’s mine
Best place to be
