A Late Night Invitation

Been waking up in the night a lot lately. I’ve heard people talk of God regularly waking them at odd hours with an impression to pray for a specific person or situation. That’s not been my experience—or if it has, I didn’t get the idea and hit the snooze button instead. But considering the recent interruptions to my slumber, I’ve wondered if God wasn’t the one doing the waking. That’s a bit of a problem because I haven’t gotten the memo concerning the agenda. I don’t know why I’m up—what I’m supposed to be doing or who I’m supposed to be praying for. Surely God could communicate that to me when I’m trying to hear, right? How can I be sure if it’s him?

Last night (or early this morning) I was discussing these things a little with myself and a little with God, when I had an epiphany that made me feel pretty silly. I am inclined to think this one was from God.

Whether he’s waking me for a specific purpose or even waking me at all, he’d still be glad enough for my company.

It sounded like an invitation.  🙂

  1. Maybe He just wants you to “be” with Him – apart from the business of the world and family. Why do we think we need to act or talk or listen all the time? Personally, I love just being with my husband, not doing anything special or even talking – just hanging out.
