The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth. (Proverbs 12:22 NLT)
Air 1 Verse of the Day
I took these pictures of the quilt one evening and I was going to delete this one, but the pink patch was showing through in the darkness, reflecting the little bit of light that was able to show through. I saved the photo and then loaded the photo assigning them a day as I loaded them.
Yesterday I got my Proverbs 31 magazine in the mail. There was an article by Alicia Bruxvoort she mentions when, "Darkness makes dawn so far away". Those times in life that are like my 3 a.m. wakefulness, when I pray myself back to sleep. Except this time it is during the day too. God is holding my hand I walk through the trails and testing of my world.
There was also a poem by Courtney Hutchinson.
At 3 a.m.
At 3 a.m.
I wake to find You
That magical hour
When no matter what the day held
And the next day holds
You are more real than ever
Tears fall down the sides of my face
Soaking into the sheets
As I feel Your presence
I talk to You about things
I won't remember in the morning
And intensity of a conversation
That I can't remember
I imagine where You walked through my bedroom
Where You sat next to me on the bed
I can't see You now
But something tells me I could at 3 a.m.
And that's more than enough for me
The poem spoke to my heart. It is so true when we awake in the night, there is nothing we can do, but rest and pray. Now that it is daytime and there is again nothing I can do...I will rest and pray.
