5 Minute Friday...Awake

Today is 5 Minute Friday. I love today. The rules simple...one word...5 minutes...write!
 Today's word....AWAKE.

Begin:

I hear it faintly, that annoying music. It won't stop until I roll over and do my favorite thing...hit the snooze button! Sleep, I must have more sleep! This goes on for sometimes an hour, waking up is not my favorite thing to do.

But finally...I am awake. Awake with a mind racing of things to do today, worries that I forgot I had, awake to the reality that today my body decided to have a flare of my illness. Oh why did I wake up?

I reach for my Bible, I read a Psalm and then dive deeper into His word. I soak in His encouragement for me today. Nothing in my circumstances have changed, but I have started my day with Him. And now I realize I can do my list, my worries aren't such a big mountain any more. My icky body, still there but, for this I have Jesus!

  6. Oh, how I love to snooze, too! But grabbing that Bible and allowing HIs word to seep into me, so much better.
