I love early morning wake-up calls. No, I'm not crazy (well maybe a little), but I'm not talking about the early wake-up calls of an alarm. I'm talking about those times when God wakes me in the wee hours of the morning, long before most people are up...long before I had planned to get up...even long before the sun comes up. Some time back a dear Christian woman helped me see that those early morning nudges when you really should be sleeping are times when God is calling you to spend time with Him...in prayer and in His Word!
This morning around 4:30, I was all the sudden awake. I had not been dreaming that I remember. There hadn't been any noises to wake me. I was simply awake. During the hour that followed, God placed so many of my friends and family on my heart.
