This morning the Lord woke me up at 3:00 am but I lay there for a while deciding whether to get up and spend time with him or pretend I didn’t hear his voice. You ever done that? I clearly heard I want to spend time with you. It’s important. OK. I’m up. In my gut I knew this was not going to be a quickie so I put on a pot of coffee. When Todd’s alarm clock went off at 6 am I was shocked. My time with the Lord had flown by. It was such a sweet time of fellowship. I wrote down 4 pages of how he spoke to me through His Word. Renewal really does come from spending time in His presence. Once again He has taught me that it is so worth it to get extended time to hear His voice. Ever tried to do lunch with a friend in a half hour? Hard to do huh? Same with Jesus. Often we need more time to connect. Wow. It is so worth it.
Thanks Lord for renewing my life this morning. For speaking to me through your word. For giving me 3 different messages for my life, for my children and maybe for a future retreat or conference. It is worth it!
