I overslept this morning...
God sitting by the fireplace waiting for me with an espresso?
Or was He lying in bed with me as I slept?
Or was He at the gym saving me a treadmill?
Or was He…? Fill in the blanks.
Because He is
Whether I sleep in
Whether I do or don't go to the gym
Whether I do or don't meet with Him in the wee early morning hours.
He is here
He is there
Because He is.
He always shows up
He is always available
He has written 66 books filled with morning, afternoon and evening devotions
that transform the heart.
Lesson learned this morning…
I am not God..
and I am glad I am not.
I know that now when I make go to have my espresso that I will make,
I can then go sit by the fireplace and
He will be there.. waiting for me.
He will not yell at me for not getting up early...
He will graciously meet with me right where I am
and we will spend time together.
He will fill me
and I will be glad I met with Him.
Am I upset that I didn’t get up earlier?
but not because my morning date with God is a have to ..
but because it has become a want to.
Thank You God
for always waiting for me,
for always being ready to fill me up...
but not with espresso.
But with all of You!
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
