“When at night you cannot sleep, talk to the shepherd and stop counting sheep” Author Unknown
It’s 3:00 a.m. I was tossing and turning. People were coming to mind to pray for. Sleep has left me. I am wide awake. I love sleep. . . But there is something stirring in my soul. I heard myself saying, “I love you with all my heart, though I am still undone, but with the heart that is continuously being touched by you and changed, that heart, loves and adores you.”
I am awake. I get up, head to the bathroom. Standing there in front of the mirror I realize I was just too lazy and sleepy to remove my makeup before I went to bed. I cover my face with Olive Oil and took a cloth to clean my face. I finished and as I gazed into the mirror my face looked refreshed, seemingly gleaming.
I walked out of the room where my husband and baby were, headed to the living room. “Get your bible and paper,” I thought. So I did. I take a seat on the sofa with my bible open on my lap. . . not intending to go to any particular book.
I started writing, “Now what, father, I’m up and waiting on you.” Suddenly, I sense fear. “What is this all about?” I stopped and began to look at the bible. It was flipped open to John 8. As I started to read through chapter after chapter words I had highlighted, I ended up in chapter 14. The fear left as I read through verses 15-21.
I sat there for a moment enjoying the rush. “Oh, wow, that feels so good,” I thought. Sleep would not come back, yet I didn’t feel tired. I was eager to see what would happen next.
“I seek your face, LORD,” I hear myself saying. There was more. Something I had been asked to pray about, he reveals the direction. Other pray requests for personal direction became clearer.
I felt encouraged and empowered. A joy sprang forth from my soul. It’s 5:30 a.m. now and I couldn’t wait to share this with you in hopes that it would encourage you to stay the course, to never give up but keep seeking.
Let me know what you think.
Keep the faith,
