Time to take write.
Lately I’ve been getting very tired during bible time and other devotionals in the morning. Right now actually – I am feeling really tired. I wonder if I should start drinking coffee when I get up?
I’ve just done Hebrews 4-8. I have to admit Hebrews is by far the most difficult book in the bible for me to understand! I really don’t understand what is going on most of the time and when understand something – it is usually a sharp reprimand or caution. Both are good, but there’s a lot more in Hebrews than that and I want it all!
I’ve decided to type my prayers out today because I am feeling quite sleepy and I think I might have an easier time trying to stay awake if I am typing, then get down and just talking. But first I am going to grab a Milo because I am even starting to nod off as I type this.
Good morning Dad!
Thanks for a great time last night! Something special happens when I get a chance to talk about you to people who are forced to listen! I really enjoy it – haha. I really do. And I love to tell everyone about this joy that you give me. Dad, I’m really thankful for the road you have me walking right now – and I just love how you lead me through! Thank you for giving me direction and a joy to press on with!
I have lots that I want to pray about today, but right now I am pretty concerned about one thing. I’m feeling very sleepy! I keep accidentally closing my eyes and then when I try to open them it takes me a while. Father I’m so sorry. I don’t want to be rude and I don’t want to give you a half-assed devo, so please strengthen me this week to get more solid in my devo time, and to pay more attention and absorb with more retention. I don’t think I’ll spend any more time praying specifically right now because I’m just so unfocussed – but there is something I really want to say.
God please change me today. I hand over to you my pride and my strength – I can not use it for good. But Father – your strength, your power and hope. Give me boldness in you so that I might truly live to worship you in Spirit and in truth. I want that freedom Father and I know where it comes from!
Praise you my Holy and living and beautiful God!
