Five Minute Friday: Again
It's times to get up again.. My husband and I have started to get up early in the moorings and pray together. This is a new thing, a tired thing. Something we have talked about for a long time.
We used to just pray together when we could find the time. That didn't work so well. Now we are intentional. In the 18 days we have been doing it I have sensed such a change in us. I am excited for what God is doing.
It's a hard thing.
It feels like Groundhog Day though every time that alarm clock goes off. Always wanting more sleep, hitting the snooze, wiping groggy eyes. and wishing I had gone to bed earlier. I feel like the man in the Dunkin Donuts commercial from my childhood, barely awake, getting our out bed and walking into work saying "It's time to make the donuts."
It's worth it.
I am thankful that in my again God's mercies are new every morning.
His again is greater than mine. His again is reliable and merciful. His again is unconditional. His again will never let me go, and never give up even when I sleep through the alarm.
