Are You Asleep?
I woke up at my in-laws house to the strong smell of mint and Josh’s Dad yelling my name. Picture the movie scene where a person opens their eyes in the morning to see a blurry version of something. In my case it was Ellie, 1/2 inch away from my face breathing heavily, smiling. That mint smell was toothpaste, EVERYWHERE. On her body, clothes, hair, my clothes, the dresser, and JT. All over the place. (Check my insta story 🤦🏽♀️)
I was so upset, my first thought was, “who can I blame.”lol But ultimately, I knew the only reason she was able to to create such a mess was because I was asleep when I was supposed to be awake. Had I been alert, there wouldn’t have been a mess to clean up.
Are you asleep spiritually? Have you allowed yourself to make a mess of your life because you’ve put the Holy Spirit inside of you to bed? If you’ve been spiritually asleep, wake up! The longer you sleep on God, the more mess you’ll make.
Mark 13:35-36 (ESV)
“Therefore stay awake—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning— lest he come suddenly and find you asleep.And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.”
