I woke up with a jolt to the sound of an alarm. It was my alarm clock going off, telling me it was time to get up and start the day. So after being jolted awake I immediately began swatting at my clock … but no matter what button I pressed, the alarm didn’t stop. It forced me to wake up more … then I realized it was the alarm on my phone going off.
It reminded me of once in school when the teacher called on me but my mind was somewhere else so I didn’t respond – at all.
Ever have that – a moment when you wake up and realize your mind wasn’t all there to start with?
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind, there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. I Kings 19:11-12
I don’t want to miss God trying to get through to me. How about you?
