Up at 3am again

I often awaken at about 3am and can’t go back to sleep for at least an hour. So I come on here, attempting to jog my brain enough to post a testimony of some kind so I can assure myself that I redeemed the time in some way. I know that most won’t bother to read these, but you never know who God will use, and for what purpose. So I attempt, wholeheartedly, to reach out to someone who needs the Lord.

I have grown older and am beginning to experience older person battles; physical, emotional and yes, spiritual as well. I have this carpal tunnel in my right hand that makes it feel itchy while I type. I don’t nearly write as much as I used to. I used to get up in the wee hours, slip downstairs and hop on the computer, and, with keys clacking mightily, I would pour out my soul to God, praying someone out there would respond.

Then a long dearth of not writing followed. I’m not sure why, I guess I just grew discouraged and fell out of the writing habit. I had also, regrettably, erased much of my hard work from years back. Sadly, I had yielded to my emotions, and didn’t stand up to those who persecuted me. So now I have nothing left but to pick up the pieces and begin again on a new writing journey. It may have been a victory for the Devil at the time, but God won’t allow me to just give up. Hence, I start over with a new determination to please the Lord in writing.

Proverbs 24:16 KJB For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

I am thankful that the Lord is a God of umpteen chances. I am also thankful that He gently pushes me to keep going in this regard, because I have not wanted to go back to my old ways of writing and testifying of His grace and strength in my life. I am an unknown, a nobody, one who will most likely never reach status or fame, but in God’s eyes I am on the winning side, and I am His child, blood-bought and with a Kingly heritage. Rewards await in Heaven for those who wholeheartedly serve Him. I can’t ask for anything more.

Let the heathen rage and shake their fists in defiance against God Almighty. They will have their just portion poured out to them. As for me, I will continue to serve my God and King whenever, wherever He places me. End
