2 a.m. Wake Up Call

It's not an uncommon thing for the Lord to wake me up early to spend time with Him. It actually happens a lot, and I really look forward to those sweet times with the Lord. Just to spend time in prayer and/or reading His Word in the quiet stillness of the morning, before most of the world around me gets's one of my favorite things.

Now typically, my alarm goes off at 5:30am. Yes- I realize that's early, but that allows me time in the Word, time to get ready, eat breakfast, make my lunch, take care of Sasha, etc. before heading out the door for work. So while some would refer to it as an "ungodly hour," I happen to disagree :) I wouldn't necessarily call myself a morning person- I'm not excited to be awake that early most days. But I don't mind getting up early. I think part of that comes from watching my parents start their days early to spend time in the Word. And really, it's my way of staying disciplined in my time with the Lord. I have to be, otherwise the day gets away from me.

So when I say that the Lord sometimes wakes me up early...that usually just means a little bit before my alarm goes off. Which every now and then is a blessing in disguise- not to be up earlier but simply to wake up without an alarm. It's so much more peaceful, because quite frankly, alarms irritate me lol. Anyway, the last few nights, I have gone to bed just fine, but I have woken up at exactly 2:03am and have not been able to fall back to sleep. This has happened 3 nights in a row, and frankly, I am just tired haha. While I am grateful for the time to spend in prayer, I would prefer for that not to become a regular occurrence at 2 in the morning. I realize this is a random post- perhaps it can be blamed on being delirious from lack of sleep :) So if you think about it, would you pray for rest and a full night's sleep?

*** Thank you for your prayers! I got a full night's sleep with no random 2 am wake up calls ;) ***


  1. Maybe He wants to tell you something. :) Next time He wakes you up at 2:03am, ask Him wants on His heart.

  2. So glad you found me in the blog world! I had no idea you had a blog either!! Glad you got a good night's sleep!
