It was go time!!
I wanted to go back to bed - wanted 2 more prescious hours.
Tried to negotiate , justify and force my way back into some REM time, but it wasn't meant to be.
Now normally at this point I would wrestle until I nodded off.
Oh how I wanted to stay in this heap of warmth.
But I noticed that I was awake and that when this happens and I do not take advantage of it -
I always regret it
God has something to say to me and I dismiss it for the idol of sleep
Now don't get me wrong sleep is important. But I had been woken up like this before and I had wasted those opportunities
I got up
I gave in
And I got on with it
If I want to hear God , and I do, it's high time I noticed His calling and responded
It is time for me to become a first responder.
" Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness , and all these things will be given unto you."
