It’s 3:00 in the morning
The kids are in bed and the usual hustle and bustle of the world is now quiet.
I should be sleeping, yet here I lie.
I am wide awake not thinking about my list of what I need to do tomorrow, which is very long, but rather contemplating the vastness and greatness of my God.
You who created the mountains, the stars, the universe. You formed Every creature that roams the earth as well as The angels in heaven. You created life from dust.
So here I sit at 3:00 AM, this tiny speck on the earth in this wonderful, vast universe, this one soul among all the others and yet you see me and know me.
You know every hair on my head, you know the desires of my heart.
You know me intimately, all the times I betrayed you, turned my back on you, and wallowed in my fleshly desires. You know all my faults and yet you still love me.
There is nothing I can do to make you love me more. Even those times I have given up my time and resources to do your work, pushing myself to the brink of exhaustion. Trying to please people and strive for worldly standards and a check list that no mortal should ever try to accomplish without your supernatural power.
But at 3:00 AM, the darkness surrounds me swallowing up in a vastness as big as the ocean, but still you see me. I can feel your presence. This is what I was made for, to talk with you, share with you, to know you as intimately as you know me. To have a relationship that we all want, we all crave and if you need to wake me up at 3:00 AM to have that quiet time, I am willing Lord. I want to want that time to seek you out, to know you more than I want to eat, more than I want to sleep, more than I want to breath, more than anything else on earth. I am here for you, just as you have always been here for me.
