There is Nothing

I had a great weekend at Women of Faith. I learned a lot, made new friends and came home with renewed vision and excitement for what God holds for me and our family.

One of the things I recommitted to is waking early. I try to do this most of the time, but with the craziness of life I’ve been, well, tired.
Sunday night I set my alarm (which I hate doing) so I could wake early and have some quiet, early morning time to read and pray. And drink coffee, of course.
The alarm went off and I had a great, quiet hour. Then, the rest of the day happened.
I strained my neck, resulting in a lot of pain. I fought with my husband. I was too hard on my kids. My littles had meltdowns all. day. long. I didn’t get near enough done. I bailed on 2 opportunities to catch up with friends.
Ugh. It was a rough one. By last night, the dust had settled. I went to bed at peace, but exhausted.
I am very aware that there is an enemy who HATES that I’m waking early. And he will try to discourage me from doing it. But none of this changes who I am or who I serve. I am the child of an amazing, merciful God who has enough grace to cover my ‘ugh’ days.
So, I woke early again today. I had this song going through my head…

I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us. Rom 8:39
