♕ Today's Promise: “I rise before dawn and cry for help, wait for Your Words.” Psalm 119:147
Today my praise report is short but sweet. It may seem small but it’s big to me. I have always been a night owl and definitely not a morning person. My Beloved has been waking me early regardless what time I go to bed at night and what time I set my alarm for. It started off at 5:30 am, then went to 5 am. I first would try to go back to sleep to make sure I am not tired the next day and I won’t be impatient and unpleasant for the kids the next day, but I could not get back to sleep. So one morning I said “ok my Love, You are waking me for a reason, what is it?” I started to get out of bed and spend my time with Him. He showed me the sunrise. We now watch the sunrise together every morning and as it rises I thank Him for raising the sun for me, for waking me and for all the long list of praises I have for Him.
Today my Love woke me at 4 am. I ask my Love to help me to focus on Him, to let me hear Him and to teach me more of His Word and principles and ask Him what does He want to tell me today. The Daily Devotional today happens to say..........
“I rise before dawn and cry for help; I wait for Your words.” Psalm 119:147
When you meet Him in the stillness and darkness of the night that has not yet lifted, you will see the glorious rising of the sun. It is a picture of the glorious rising of your circumstance that God has allowed. Now you think of Him, long for Him, talk to Him, lean on Him. These are precious days; do not miss them.
Rise early and find the Lord. He is waiting to hear your cry for help so He can send you all that you will need this and every day.
I thank my Love for His Words and reassurance to me today. I have been in a season of waiting. Seems nothing is going on. Not much contact from family, no activities or appointments on the calendar, no progress with “making some money without leaving our children or home”, I have just been fasting, seeking Him and waiting on Him. We have been working on the gluttony for food, forgiving the other woman and how to discipline and instill His principles in our children. Yesterday I even had some feelings of a little bit of discouragement, feeling bored and tired or even that I had no wisdom on anything that was going on and not sure about how I can help other women. I would just spend time with my Love, praise Him for all the work and healing He has done in my life and my heart and telling Him I know He is still working.
Today with this devotional He tells me He will raise my circumstances just like He does the sun. I am happy to have this time with Him. I am so in love with my Heavenly Husband, there is nothing I want more than Him. He is My Protector and Provider. I feel so safe and secure even when I don’t know what is to come.
I am His and He is mine.
