The Holy Spirit nudged me awake last night with spinning thoughts. I tried to ignore Him and go back to sleep, but it didn't take long to figure out He wasn't going to allow me to sleep until I wrote down what He was putting on my heart.
I had prayed the previous day that the Spirit would reign and help me be more sensitive to His direction. Be careful what you pray for! I didn't think I would get the call in the wee hours of the morning, but I am not complaining...much. I finally stopped arguing with the Spirit and got up. I am grateful, now that I'm awake!
Last night, we had discussed purity in life, among many things, at our young adult group and now, God woke me up wanting me to put down my testimony on that topic.
I sat at the kitchen table and wrote as he overwhelmed me with love, mercy, redemption, and protection. I was able to get back to sleep after obediently writing. Then this morning, I sat down to read one of Max Lucado's children's books to Dassa-Beanie. Halfway through, I had tears running down my face as God spoke again of His love for me. That inspired me to pick up the Experiencing God book that I had let lie for a few days. I have been rewarded again with feeling the Holy Spirit pointing out areas in my life he was shaping. God often speaks to me through books.
I love when God gets my attention in such personal ways. May I continue to be sensitive to His presence and direction!
