This is standard for me. I’m not a morning person by nature, and usually hit snooze several times before having my first morning coffee. I’ve been told I’m like “pushing rope” in the morning. I’m not sure it’s a compliment. Of my many fault, I consider this minor.

Truly, though, I believe God wants us to be fully awake, spiritually speaking, to experience all He has for us. It’s easy to become comfortable and complacent in our lives, and the danger in this is that we will fall asleep spiritually, and miss the blessings He has for us.

32 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Be on guard! Be alert ! You do not know when that time will come. 34 It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.35 “Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36 If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37 What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’ ”

Mark 13:32-37 | NIV

In my year of WAIT, I will challenge myself not to snooze spiritually. This means I need to vigilant with prayer time as well as spending time reading His Word, watching and listening for Him. Challenge yourselves, my friends, not to snooze

Be blessed

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
