A while back, okay maybe a few years ago I felt like God was telling me to wake at 5:00am to start my day. To pray, meditate, exercise to get me into a good frame of mind for the day I guess.
But 5:00am is hard for me. I can’t function if I wake a minute before 6. Strangest thing. My body and mind is not wired that way. I need 8 hours of sleep.
But you know God he is patient and takes his time and then he has a whale swallow you up so that you can really consider his position. LOL
First he gave me twin girls who didn’t like the idea of sleep so I find that I adjusted to needing less sleep but still waking at 5am was hard. And then the big daughter started high school and the bell rings at 7:20 so I started setting an alarm at 5:30 and letting it snooze at least twice.
And lately God has decided enough is enough and he has been waking me up at 4:00am.
Yes I said 4. Brain alert and thinking, eyes wanting to pop open. BUT. I stay in my bed.
And at 5 I am up and out.
Today Saturday is no different.
Honestly though I am enjoying the quiet, the meditation and the sunrises. And most of all the calm that I think it is instilling in me. Thank you God.
So GOOD MORNING to you
