Today the Lord gave me a very specific instruction and I obeyed even though I was very tired. I had not rested well the night before and when I finally did fall asleep, I only slept for about three hours and let me tell you, I am not one who can get by on that amount of sleep. To feel rested I need seven to eight hours. I have always been that way. My mother told me I was a good baby that slept for long periods of time. 🙂
Well, even though I was tired, I had to do what the Lord instructed me to do and boy am I glad that I obeyed. Honestly, I had a certain expectation, but I got more than I bargained for, in a good way. I see the breakthrough right in front of me and it is so sweet.
To say that I have gone through some rough times is an understatement. But the other day I was listening to a message about suffering and I realize that today, you no longer hear messages about suffering and it’s really messed the Body of Christ up. Now, if you suffer in the church, people think something is wrong with you. But suffering is sometimes necessary, in order for God to work certain things out of us.
Didn’t mean to go there, but that truth needed to be shared. But no suffering lasts forever. Finally it will come to an end, when you least expect. That is what happened to me yesterday. When I least expected it, I can say I see the breaking of a new day!!
