This morning I woke up and remembered that it was our anniversary! As I gazed at my sleeping love, he woke up, gave me a smile and then for a moment he became lost as he gazed into space.
I didn’t want to interrupt his waking moment, but I thought to myself as he became lost in thought… only God knows where he is right now.
In that moment, with that thought, I wanted to melt into our one true Love so that my husband and I could be lost together in His infinite ocean of love.
By losing ourselves or melting into Him we are not lost, but instead find His buried treasure of knowing each other even more deeply. This hidden treasure is wonderful, but even it falls short of a deeper secret waiting for us.
I long to long to lose myself for Him alone.
For the last few months I have been waking up every morning about 10-15 min before my youngest daughter wakes up. I usually check the time and then roll over and try to fall back asleep for a few min before I hear her calling for me.
For the last few weeks it has crossed my mind a few times during this early morning time check that maybe God wants me to wake up early and read the Bible before my daughter gets up. I haven’t actually done this, but I have thought about it a few times.
A few days ago I started reading another blog. The author of this blog wakes up every morning to read his Bible.
Well this morning, it happened again. I woke up at 5:50 am, I checked the time on my phone, laid there for a min thinking about how tired I was, but then I leaned over to turn on the light.
I opened to Isaiah 60:1 and the first two words I saw were “Arise, shine”. What a beautiful morning greeting from God!
Now I have to practice listening to His words, because unfortunately when I was done reading, I turned off the light and fell back asleep for 5 more min, and when I did wake up we had a very hectic morning.
Jesus, thank You for the beautiful wake up call this morning. Please give me the strength to not hit the snooze button on You tomorrow morning if I am blessed with another wake up call from You!
